The Liberals are outspending other parties on Facebook election ads, according to new data released by the social media site. But the Conservatives are close behind — and are spending more per ad than any other party.

The Facebook pages for the Liberal Party of Canada and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have spent a total of $92,307 on ads on the social media platform since the beginning of June, according to estimates offered by Facebook's ad library , a searchable tool that tracks advertising spending by page.

The Conservative party's page and party leader Andrew Scheer's own page have spent a total of $87,441, while the NDP has spent only $392 via leader Jagmeet Singh's page. The Green Party has spent a total of $1,036, and the Bloc Quebecois has shelled out $384.
