Conservatives maintain fundraising supremacy

The Conservatives easily defended their position as top political fundraisers last year, taking in $5.2 million in the final quarter of 2013.

OTTAWA — The Conservatives easily defended their position as top political fundraisers last year, taking in $5.2 million in the final quarter of 2013.

Party president John Walsh told supporters in an email Sunday that the party had its best fourth quarter ever in a non-election year.

The Liberals had hoped to overtake the Tories during that last three-month stretch, but came in at $4.3 million.

Still, the Liberals have significantly increased their fundraising numbers since Justin Trudeau took over the leadership in April.

Walsh’s email said the party raked in the most money despite attacks by Trudeau and the media.
