pay any attention. I actually complained to Dan Hilton, about the cost of our convention for our kids. He told me that no sponsorships of the convention were allowed. I have no doubt marc mayrand will find some way to ignore this complaint. I am sure he is planning another raid on Tory HQ, just for the hell of it.
OTTAWA — The Conservative Party wants Elections Canada to review what it believes are inappropriate union sponsorships at the NDP Convention last June.
In a letter to Marc Mayrand, the chief electoral officer of Canada, dated August 31, 2011, Conservative Party lawyer Arthur Hamilton says his client writes to “identify certain matters of concerns” arising from the New Democrats’ Vancouver convention.
Prominently displayed signage at the convention, Hamilton writes, suggests sponsorship had been provided by unions, such as USW, UFCW, PSAC and CUPE among others, as well as by Thistle Printing, an incorporated identity.
Posters also suggested the United Steelworkers had sponsored a $300 per-person reception with the NDP leader, Hamilton added.
