The Conservative Party appears to be in rude financial health as it heads toward the 2019 federal election with more cash in the bank than the Liberals, according to annual financial returns filed with Elections Canada.

Those returns show the Conservative Party raised $24.2 million from 104,138 contributors in 2018 — up from the $18.8 million the party raised the previous year and its best non-election year on record.

The detailed accounting breakdown of the party's financial standing shows the Conservatives had an operating surplus of $3.6 million, net assets of $5.1 million and $9.9 million in cash at year's end.
