- Good Help - Hard To Find

The event invitation on the Liberal website makes it pretty clear it was a fundraiser to help Lisa Dempster. Why would Ms. Dempster and her chief financial officer fly to St. John's if the event was not for her. The Liberal Executive knew the rules and was prepared to follow them. Whoever wrote the invitation did not know the rules. That's the difference here. The Liberals had to lay off their Executive Director due to lack of funds to pay him and now there is less oversight of well meaning but uninformed staff.

Randy, what rule are you talking about?

This makes NO sense. They are not allowed to raise money for a particular candidate yet they went ahead and had a fundraiser for their candidate. Just by saying that all of the money MAY not go to their candidate they are allowed to break the rules? Why have any rules?

Randy, they did not break any rules. This could not be more clear. The NDP is wrong (no surprise there) and wasting their time (ditto). Provincial political parties are allowed (indeed they are encouraged) to raise money at all times and this is what they did. The fact that they had past candidates and likely future candidates at the event does not change this fact.
