Corporate (including unions) donations to election campaigns were eliminated over a decade ago. Only individual contributions are allowed, and are tax deductible. One can give to the national party, local campaign, and such individually, so the total per donor is actually fairly high. And corporations and parties have figured out ways to game that system.So am I to understand there are different limits for election spending for the two major parties but the NDP as a third party has a lower limit and cant accept gifts from corporations?
So all parties play by the same rules but the Liberals and Conservatives tend to attract more since they are more likely to be in power and able to give something in return.
