Grits at 44% in Ontario !!!
I see from the Toronto Sun today that the Grits have rebounded further in the polls. Here in Upper Canada they sit just shy of 44%.
Beliveau said a few weeks prior to the launch of the 1997 federal election, Corriveau handed him about $100,000 in $20 and $100 bills after he told him that the party needed $300,000 to mobilize troops in Quebec. "I thought he'd be able to get that money and he did," he said.Who says crime doesn't pay?
Beliveau testified that in late 1997 he asked Corriveau for another $8,000 to pay off a business that was owed money by failed Quebec City Liberal candidate Helene Sherrer, who is now PM Paul Martin's principal secretary.
Beliveau said he got a total of $121,500 in cash from Brault after asking Liberal organizer Renaud, who was also a Groupaction subcontractor, to lobby his boss for donations.
Beliveau, who broke down and wept into a handkerchief before leaving the stand, said he handed the envelopes of cash to former Liberal executive member Benoit Corbeil, admitting that they were never registered in the party books and broke financing laws.
I'm off to scout camp this weekend with Liam the Mad.
