The founder of a conservative group says he was successful at getting some large donations from wealthy Ontario people, but he's declining to reveal exactly who gave big money to back his political operations.

Jeff Ballingall founded Ontario Proud, which ran a targeted campaign for $1 million donations to help Doug Ford's Progressive Conservatives defeat the Liberal government in the June election.

While the group's fundraising tally is unknown for now and its influence unmeasurable, Ballingall is claiming success and has started a new Facebook campaign "building a war chest to take down Justin Trudeau" in the federal election next fall.
