Conservative Pre-election Spending Tracker

A few minutes ago we released a tally of Conservative pre-election spending from June 2 to September 4.

Some highlights:

293 spending announcements totaling $8.8-billion, which works out to $94-million a day or $3.9-million every hour.

Read the news release.

Don't forget to check out the master list.

How does this stack up to past Liberal spending benders you ask?

Judge for yourself.

Check out our 2005 Liberal pre-election spending tracker.

One thing is for sure, politicians regardless of political stripe all play the same game.

I wonder if there is any ACOA money in there for Lego competitions? :)

It appears that someone out there didn't care much for this publicity. I tried to open the spending 'Master list' file and found it to be 'damaged and unrepairable'.

In rural southwestern Ontario, I will be voting Conservative again. Canada deserves a leader that can be counted on to make the right decisions for this country. Harper has proven to Canadian voters that his government was the right choice last time and will be this time.
