Jason Kenney, sits in one of the wealthiest Conservative ridings in the country with a local war chest that dwarfs many of his colleagues.
That spending might was on display in the last election when Kenney’s association in Calgary Midnapore doled out $183,000 to 44 candidates based on returns from some 1,500 candidates filed with Elections Canada by the end of March.
While his association mainly sent payments of $5,000 or $2,500, six candidates received $10,000 each from Kenney: One of which was Roxanne James. She received $10,000.00 from Kenney riding association. Let’s put this into context, Jason Kenney riding association donated to a candidate who opposes equal rights for the LGBTQ community in Canada. Enough said.
