How does Poilievre's own riding factor into the Ottawa numbers? Assuming he's seen a bump here, this would suggest an even further decline in the rest of Ottawa.

Since political donstions are necessarily paid for with discretionary income, might the declines in Vancouver and Toronto be partly explained by the excessive housing and/or fuel inflation in those cities?

The real test is when Pollievre has to defend his policies instead of just attacking the liberal government. Currently, he appears to have no policy on issues that matter a lot to Canadians, which includes climate change, and the relationship with indigenous people. It’s not hard to gain a lot of money from a group of racist, white people who feel threatened by changing policy and changing conditions in their country and their own power is being threatened by change. These folks see the conservative party as their last hope.

His Preston Manning makeover is very telling. I am waiting for him to cackle out “Reform!” I believe that when the chips are down most people want a sustainable society. The lack of such policies in the reform-conservative party will be noted by the centrist electorate.

Hi Eric, I am interested in data from York region north of Toronto. Is there a big increase in raw number of donors or just the overall amount?
