Election 2015 Expenses

Conservative, NDP candidates ramped up ad spending in final weeks of election in face of increasing Liberal support: expense reports

From Oct. 1 to voting day, former NDP MP Paul Dewar’s campaign spent more than $55,000 on advertising, including $28,000 for radio and TV ads. When Mr. Dewar easily brushed off challengers by capturing 52 per cent of the vote in the riding in 2011, he spent only $3,440 on radio and television advertising and $29,000 on brochures, handouts and newspaper placements.
