The Liberals are doing everything correct and by the book. The NDP are just stirring up trouble because they know who's going to win (the Liberals). On with the Campaign! Let's hope the NDP do their homework before they make a show of themselves in public next time!!!

It sounds to me like sour grapes because the Liberals probably have the best chance to win after many people not being happy with the Conservatives recently. People in my opinion shouldn't suggest accusations like that unless they have some kind of evidence to back it up. Why not just focus on the issues, the problems that need to be solved and everyone work together for the good of the people? Is that really so hard?

Election NL said Thursday afternoon that the Liberals broke no rules, and did nothing wrong. I have no idea why The Telegram hasn't said so, or why no story with the truth is on their website.

Good point, Adam. We actually published the story in our Friday edition saying the Liberals broke no rules, but it didn't get posted to our website. It's there now.

The Liberals want everyone to think they do everything clean! Worth your while to check out the last couple of bi elections that took place. There were MHA's, former MHA's, office staff everywhere in the district but when the expenses came out there were no expenses claimed! Yep sounds like its all on the up and up. If all those expenses were claimed it would have been well over the election limit! And if anyone saw the initial ad for the fundraiser it was to raise money for Lisa Dempsters elction! Spin it whichever way they want!

The entire reason there is a federal byelection in Labrador is because of dodgy election financing that caused Penashue to resign and Jones give up her seat. Mrs. Dempster, at least turn on a TV set if you're not smart enough to read a newspaper. Election rules are there in place, go have your sharpest chief financial officer pick up a copy of the rules and read them before you go off and make another mistake.
- What Liberal Party Fundraising
- May 09, 2013 - 11:56
The provincial Liberal party is nearly $1 million in debt and have been that way for almost 10 years now. Not a great fundraising machine there. Here is a a legal and legitimate hint Ms. Dempster, the Cartwright-L'anse au Clair district Liberal association can legally fundraise all year long and then contribute financially to it's candidate's campaign. Don't rely on the crowd in the Liberal opposition office for advice, they really are in chaos and have not been effective at much for years.

What is it about Labrador politics and breaking the rules?

That's ok because, just to be fair, if elections Canada takes charge of this case and acts as fast as they have been with the peter penashue case, then she'll be into her pension years before we get to the bottom of this. What a joke they have be come. Didn't penashue say, when he was pretending he was elected to the harper conservatives, that the SAR in Quebec was going to close.

Rules are rules .... until you find a way around them. She will fit in well with the other MHAs.

Urg, this is tangly, but seems legit. If a party can hold a fundraiser whenever it wants, and then give the money to whoever they want, I fail to see what the fuss is about.
