Canada Proud, the right-wing third party advertiser that operates largely on Facebook, covers its page with Canadian flags and claims its work champions "ordinary working Canadians."

The group even railed against foreign imports, noting "made-in-Canada" products are available a little closer to home.

But a newly filed financial disclosure reveals one of Canada Proud's top donors is an anti-union lobby group currently lobbying for steel imports from foreign suppliers that often rely on low-wage labour — a change critics suggest would only serve to benefit big developers at the expense of Canadian workers.
