    I'm pretty sure that's illegal.

    e.g. SNC-Lavalin got caught giving their money to donate to the Liberal Party of Canada.

    The investigation reveals that over a period of more than five years between 2004 and 2009, 18 former SNC-Lavalin employees, directors and some spouses contributed nearly $110,000 to the federal Liberals, including to four party leadership campaigns and four riding associations in Quebec.

    According to the letter, the investigation found that SNC-Lavalin reimbursed all of those individual donations — a practice forbidden under the Canada Elections Act.

    A few years earlier a Toronto law firm got caught doing the same thing, although I can't find it at the moment.


    There may be some wording you can use to get around it. Inform everyone before the purchase and again on the receipt that a portion of their purchase is going to the Party. Maybe. But you can't say a portion of your profit is going as a donation. A lawyer might know how to word it.

    You can sell people parts at inflated prices, such as a Make Trudeau A Drama Teacher Again hat or magazine for ~$30 ($30 = $10 hat + $20 donation. Anything less than $20 might not get a tax receipt, I don't recall). That would be similar to $500-a-head fundraising dinners, where $450 is donated to the Party, and $50 goes to the food/venue.

    Work out the aforementioned kinks in the plan and I would contribute to that cause.

    Please start ASAP once its been worked out. Perhaps, there could be some non-gun items or whatever for any non-gun owner that might want to get rid of the liberals. These kinds of things often take time to build momentum .... one way or another an election is coming and theres no point waiting once its figured out.

    Because we are unable to give on behalf of another person or as a corporation we would have to give personally (share holders). We are just running an idea past those in the know, and should have something up and running shortly.

    It would be easier if we were donating to the Liberals, that way we would not have observe any rules and just do it anyways. We would be guaranteed to have the media down play it as well!

    Bumper stickers. Everybody reads them.
    Print up some with a catchy slogan or statement & give them away or chage a buck.

    Just got off the phone with the party. Unfortunately there is some very strict rules in regards to Businesses donation and rules about donating when it can be argued that there was gain on our end. You and I can donate personally, but anytime things are done through a business, outside of some literature, there is not much that can be done without getting the attention of Elections Canada.

    This would be a lot of work for you and I would totally get why you wouldn’t want to do it and it’s a hypothetical anyways but what if we bought from you and then you took whatever percentage of the purchase and donated it in our name?
