Members of a controversial religious sect helped fund a third-party group with links to Scott Moe's Saskatchewan Party and Jason Kenney's United Conservative Party that ran ads attacking Justin Trudeau and Liberal candidates in the 2019 federal election.

The Plymouth Brethren Christian Church, also known as the "Exclusive Brethren," is a religious sect with only 50,000 members around the world, particularly in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. In Canada, the Brethren are believed to have fewer than 10,000 members.

The PBCC were the subject of a recent CityNews documentary that brought to light allegations from former members detailing how they were cut off from friends and families under the PBCC's "doctrine of separation." The PBCC disputes these claims and denies it is a "cult" — the PBCC's leader is listed on its website as Bruce Hales of Sydney, Australia.
