The Globe and Mail reported Friday that Mr. Kinsella and his Daisy Group consulting firm worked on a secret campaign to "seek and destroy" the fledgling People's Party of Canada and keep Mr. Bernier out of the national leaders' debates.

Internal Daisy Group records obtained by The Globe show a team of Daisy Group employees worked on a plan called "Project Cactus" that focused on portraying People's Party supporters as racist.

The records make several references to a "client" for the project, including sending a bill for payment, but the client's identity is not revealed in the documents.

A source with direct knowledge of the project said the client listed in the documents is the Conservative Party of Canada. The Globe is keeping the source's name confidential because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.
