Albertans looking to unwind by watching a quick cat video or movie trailer on YouTube may have recently noticed a collection of Jason Kenney Russian nesting dolls appearing on their screen first.

It's one of a handful of paid advertisements purchased by Project Alberta, a left-leaning organization registered with Elections Alberta as a third-party advertiser, or political action committee (PAC), for the ongoing election campaign.

Third-party advertisers have raised more than $1.8 million, combined, since the election advertising period began Dec. 1, according to contributions reported to Elections Alberta. There are currently 26 PACs registered, although a handful haven't declared any fundraising dollars yet.
