The federal government is poised to introduce legislation today that will put an end to exclusive, private fundraisers featuring cabinet ministers, party leaders and leadership contenders.
The Liberal Government has already adopted new “rules” requiring that all fundraisers featuring ministers be advertised in advance, conducted in publicly available places and open to the media. The party has promised to publicly disclose within 45 days the names of all those who attended and other details.
Those rules were put in place after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was roasted for attending exclusive fundraisers in private homes, where people paid up to the maximum donation of $1,550 to rub shoulders with the prime minister.
