The federal Liberals are asking the elections commissioner to look into what they allege is possible improper co-ordination between two conservative pressure groups, a claim the groups' spokesman says is frivolous.

The Liberal party says in a letter to commissioner Yves Cote that Canada Proud and British Columbia Proud sent nearly identical mass emails on July 15, asking for donations to Canada Proud to save the country from a second term for the Liberals.

The catch is that Canada Proud is a registered third-party campaigner for the upcoming federal election, unlike British Columbia Proud.
