ON NDP urges investigation of leadership campaign, CCC charitable status

The Ontario NDP have urged an investigation of the 2018 leadership campaign of Ontario Premier Doug for allegedly failing to disclose the use of Canada Christian College’s space for a week-long leadership vote. CBC reports that the college did not report renting or donating space for this political activity, and that Doug Ford never reported the meeting space in his financial returns. “I am deeply concerned that the space used by Mr. Ford’s team constitutes an illegal contribution under Elections Ontario law,” NDP MPP Laura Mae Lindo continued. “I am also concerned that, as a registered charity, Canada Christian College is prohibited from engaging in political activity.”iPolitics reports that the NDP is also requesting that Revenue Canada investigate CCC’s charitable status.
