The Conservatives raised more money than both the Liberals and NDP combined during the second quarter of 2022, with the Tories raising $4.4 million from 36,000 donors between April 1 and June 30. This as the party nears its leadership election date.
The Trudeau Liberals raised $2.8 million from 28,000 donors, while the NDP raised $1.2 million from 1.6 people.
The Greens raised $438,000 from 5,200 donors, while $247,000 was raised by the Bloc Quebecois.
The PPC raised $200,000 from 4,000 donors, the most for a party without any seats in Parliament.
While numbers are highest for the Conservatives, the party raised less than it did during the second quarter of 2021, a trend that is true with all federal parties, as rumours swirled at this time last year that there would be a fall election.
Last year, the Conservatives raised $5.2 million from 35,000 donors, the Liberals raised $3.3 million from 36,000 donors, the NDP raised $1.5 million from 18,000 donors. The Greens received $682,000 in donations from 8,000 Canadians, and the Bloc raised $312,000 from 2,300.
Conservative leadership frontrunner Pierre Poilievre brought in the most contributions for his campaign, raising $4 million. Former Quebec premier Jean Charest raised almost $1.4 million.
The Conservative leadership race ends on September 10.
