BREAKING: Trudeau Liberals Ran Ads On Facebook Soliciting Donations In The U.S. & U.K. “Despite It Being Illegal To Accept Donations From Foreign Citizens” Reports Toronto Star

It’s illegal for federal political parties to accept donations from non-Citizens or non-Permanent Residents.

As the Trudeau Liberal government considers shutting down social media in advance of the election, it turns out they’re the ones failing to follow the rules.

The Toronto Star is reporting that the Federal Liberals solicited donations in the United States and the United Kingdom:

“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberal party ran a series of fundraising ads targeting American and U.K. audiences on Facebook despite it being illegal to accept donations from foreign citizens.

The party used its official Facebook account, as well as Trudeau’s, to solicit donations from the U.S. and U.K. for a week in March — advertising party official Braeden Caley says was an error. Caley said no money was collected from foreign citizens through the ad campaign.”

The Liberals are claiming it was a mistake:

“A limited set of grassroots fundraising ads on Facebook inadvertently ran briefly both inside and outside of Canada, when that wasn’t the intention here,” said Caley, a spokesperson for the Liberal party, in a statement to the Star.

“The ads were removed by the following week. (The Liberal party) has also been reviewing with Facebook how the ads were able to extend into the other places that you’ve referenced.”

It must be emphasized that it is illegal for a Canadian federal political party to solicit donations from anyone who is not a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident.

Despite that, the Liberals ran the ads for a full week in two foreign countries. Despite running the donation solicitation ads for that period of time, the Liberals are actually trying to claim that they raised no money from foreign countries.

Of course…

This is appalling, and is massively hypocritical, considering how the Trudeau Liberals are the ones threatening to silence social media as election approaches, and are constantly attacking the social media platforms for ‘not following the rules.’

Turns out, it’s the Liberals who are not following the rules, and this raises even more questions about their shady and authoritarian motives as they seek to put the government in control of social media networks and reduce our freedom to speak and debate freely.

Yet again, the Liberals tell everyone to act a certain way, and then do the exact opposite – while expecting us to just ignore their corrupt and manipulative actions.

What I see in this is the Liberals cannot get funding at home so they try to get it outside of Canada. I can believe that they got none there as well. The target with shutting down the interest just before the election is to shut down popular website not in tune with the liberal message such as yours Spencer, the Rebel and Jill’s. They know that it is these website that Canadian are turning to to get their news… like I do. These website need our support to continue revealing the truth. Give… like I do.

Just more proof of Trudeau’s strong desire to be a dictator. He and his Liberal party have shown once again why they can never be trusted with power. It is said with great power comes great responsibility, it is clear to everyone ,that Trudeau just wants the great power without the responsibility to abide by the laws he was elected upon to uphold and enforce them, even upon himself and his corrupt Liberal party. It is also beyond belief that the Liberals and Trudeau would run ads in America and Britain and after a full week , they didn’t raise… Read more »

How much more corruption and manipulation can the Liberals get away with? Is there no one in Canada that can charge him for destroying our Country? Need some answers please.

Not even the Conservatives are getting the police to lay charges. Pathetic little questions in Parliament meekly asking Trudeau to do “whatever”, yes or no, is really stupid. Trudeau is thin-skinned and cannot tolerate opposition without resorting to screaming and ranting, so why isn’t Scheer attacking?

What the hell is going on in this country? Will we be forced to resort to violence to save Canada?

Trudeau is a sleazy little dictator. His motto is, ” Do as I say; not as I do.” It wouldn’t surprise me if he was re-elected in the next election. The majority of people who voted him in, appear to be in denial. Too bad they don’t wake up.

If Liberals get a majority, Canada is finished. It will break apart. One of the greatest countries in the world is being deliberately destroyed by Liberals and political correctness.

Since when have Laws, rules and regulations had anything to do with Liberals? They only deny when they have been caught and exposed and use the standard pathetic excuse of “trying to do better because that is what Canadians expect and deserve”.

Hi,. Welcome to Canada. What do you want us to change so that it doesn’t offend you?

Question…
If laws are being broken, then where is our police to enforce our laws?
As far as I see, politicians can break laws with impunity over and over again.
Does not bode well that criminals can break our laws as our politicians are suppose to be exemplary examples to follow.

I have gotten to believe our government is working in the best interests of the US and that would include the breakup of Canada.

This is just another example of the Liberal mindset wherein what is illegal for others to do and would immediately bring about screeches of horror from them, is considered normal by them when if may well be of benefit to the Liberal Party — that is the way the Liberal mindset operates.
