Harper’s Conservative Party fundraising role appears unprecedented, expected to mobilize base

Former prime minister Stephen Harper, pictured during the 2015 campaign, is a director on the board of the Conservative Party Fund. He also recently sent out a fundraising call to Conservative supporters. Political observers say it's likely to 'mobilize and motivate' Conservatives to donate—but could do the same for Liberals.
