See? No wrongdoing by the Conservatives.
Commissioner of Elections Canada was wrong, wrong, wrong!
Hot off the Federal Court newswire comes word of a pretty darned decisive-sounding win for the Conservatives in their long-running dispute over the in-and-out election financing scheme:
A decision was issued this morning by the Honourable Luc Martineau of the Federal Court in file T-838-07:
IN THE MATTER OF L.G. Callaghan and the Chief Electoral Officer of Canada
Following the hearing held in November 2009, the Court has set aside the Chief Electoral Officer's decision to refuse to certify the advertising expenses claimed by the two applicants in relation to their campaigns' share of a Regional Media Buy (RMB) program organized by the Conservative Party of Canada during the 39th general election, which took place on January 23, 2006. The Court has determined that the claimed advertising expenses were incurred by the applicants and has ordered the Chief Electoral Officer to provide the Receiver General of Canada with a new certificate.
