O’Toole’s Conservatives post record-breaking second half, and record-breaking Q4
Erin O’Toole’s first six months as leader of the Conservative Party has brought in record fundraising totals, and has put the party well on track towards funding a full election campaign, just 14 months after the last federal election. O’Toole’s Conservatives raised over $7.6 million in Q4, a record Q4 for any party, bringing the second half of 2020 to a fundraising total of over $13.3 million – a record outside of an election for any party.
“Since the start of my leadership, we’ve worked tirelessly on behalf of Canadians, and thanks to a second half that had a record-breaking amount of support from Canadians looking for change in the government, our Conservative team can focus exclusively on getting as many people back to work, in every part of Canada, in every sector, as quickly as possible,” said O’Toole. “The Liberals can focus on keeping their own jobs, Conservatives are focused on securing yours. We’re ready to do whatever it takes to get the economy back on track, while the Liberals are ready to do whatever it takes to help themselves and their well-connected friends.”
The Conservative’s Q4 fundraising total of $7,661,755 from 46,234 donors is a record Q4 for any political party in Canada. The second half fundraising total of $13,316,937 is a record second half outside an election for any political party in Canada.
“We know the next election is going to be about securing the future of the country,” said O’Toole. “It’s securing the financial future, securing jobs, and securing our economic recovery. Our team is focused on jobs, wages, and getting Canada’s finances back on track. These fundraising results show clearly that Canadians are responding to our message, and are trusting us to lead and manage the economy.”
The next fundraising report will cover January to March 2021, and will be released by Elections Canada at the end of April.January 29, 2021
The Conservative Party of Canada has released its quarterly fundraising report, and it’s a record breaking quarter with $5.6 million raised from nearly 40,000 Canadians. This fundraising quarter is Erin O’Toole’s first as Conservative Party leader, and is the best Q3 the Conservative Party has had in its history outside of an election year.
“Our team knows the difficulty Canadians are facing as a result of the economic slowdown from COVID-19 measures, and that makes these fundraising results that much more important to me,” said Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives. “Canadians are depending on us to continue to stand up for them and their family, and ensure those left behind by the Liberals have someone in their corner. They’re trusting us, not just with their vote, as we saw in the recent by-election in the Liberal stronghold of York Centre, but they’re also making a financial commitment to ensure we have the competitive edge to take on the Liberals in the next election, and give the country the ethical, serious, and intelligent leadership it deserves from their government.”
The final results for the Conservative Party in Q3 was $5,659,092 raised from 39,451 Canadians. The next best Q3 was in 2018 when the Party raised $4,855,184 from 36,655 Canadians. Comparatively, the best non-election year Q3 from the Liberals was in 2018 when they raised $3,761,601 from 33,070 donors.
“This is a big step towards defeating the Liberals, and this has been a strong showing from Erin O’Toole and our team this week,” said Scott Lamb, President of the Conservative Party. “With impressive results in the by-election in York Centre, and now a record breaking fundraising quarter for his first quarter as leader of our party, Erin O’Toole is showing exactly the type of leader Conservatives voted for, and the type of leader Canadians are now getting to see firsthand. Someone that’s focused on the priorities of regular Canadians, not just the well-connected Liberal insiders like we’ve seen from the Trudeau government.”
