N.B. Proud rejects claims it violated campaign-spending laws - 2019-03-21
An online group responsible for anti-Liberal advertising and text messages in the last provincial election says it didn't violate any campaign-spending laws.
Connor MacDonald, who runs the New Brunswick group, is rejecting claims by the Liberals that the group co-ordinated its message with the Progressive Conservative campaign — something that would be illegal.
"We were always registered to do business in New Brunswick and we adhere to all the the relevant laws and statutes on these sorts of questions," MacDonald said in a telephone interview from the United Kingdom, where he's attending university.
