National Post (Canada): Follow the Money – Welcome

National Post (Canada): Follow the Money – Welcome. “There is no tracking of donations made on a national scale. There are no consistent rules — or penalties — for political financing across Canada. Spending limits, out-of-province and foreign gifts, money from unions and corporations, donations from numbered companies: in some places anything goes, in others regulations are rarely enforced. The Follow the Money project is an effort to address these gaps, and hold politicians to account for gifts large and small. ”
