Scheer's Conservatives rake in more than double the donations of Trudeau Liberals in Q1 - 2019-04-30
The long Canadian winter of 2019 was good for at least one thing: filling the war chests of the country's political parties.
The Conservative Party of Canada's first-quarter haul of $8 million is more than any party has ever raised in the first three months of a year. It exceeds the Tories' fundraising in the first quarter of 2018 by $2 million.
Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer attributes his party's financial prowess to having a message that is resonating with Canadians and believes it is a sign Canadians want a change in government.
