The Tories raised over $22.7 million in 2011. It is more than all other Canadian federal political parties combined. Interestingly the grits outraised the dippers in 2011. Electoral welfare is being phased out so the Tory fundraising advantage will be even more important. The Conservatives, meanwhile, out-fundraised all parties, which it has consistently been doing for the past five years. According the party’s annual return, the Conservatives raised a record $22.7-million in 2011, from 110,267 donors.
