Update on NDP’s money laundering scheme via Broadbent Institute

On Sept 29th, I emailed Elections Canada asking about the status of my official complaint filed against the NDP for breaking Section 405.21 of the Election Act (see here) and received this reply:

“Dear Mr. Skoreyko:

Thank you for your inquiry. We do not require further information from you at this time. This Office will communicate with you concerning the outcome of your complaint when we are in a position to do so.

The Office of the Commissioner of Canada Elections”

So it came as quite the surprise that according to the Ottawa Citizen’s Glen McGregor (on his blog) Elections Canada has been working with the NDP to sort this illegal mess out for them:

“On the advice of Elections Canada, the NDP is refunding the donations and instead asking the donors to contribute direct to Douglas-Coldwell, Vallerand wrote.” (see here)

Anyone want to bet against me soon getting an email from Elections Canada stating that “all issues have now been resolved and we consider the matter closed” from Elections Canada?

    What no raid with cameras rolling after having alerted the MSM? Funny how this is being treated differently by EC, but then on the other hand it does not surprise.

    The NDP should be investigated to see what other 3rd parties have received donations ‘directly from the party’
    Perhaps this isn’t a new scheme by Dippers, and it has been done before.

    ‘….It seems that even for the NDP itself to forward the money directly to a third-party charitable organization, the Douglas-Coldwell group was an iffy arrangement in the eyes of Elections Canada.

    “Recently, Elections Canada let us know that donations to the Broadbent Institute had to be made through a registered charity, not through our party,” Vallerand said in emails to donors…’
