Don't phone bank on it

The Coalition of Progressive Electors has made another mistake on its campaign financing disclosure statement. According to the statement, federal New Democrat parliamentarian Don Davies's "Kingsway office" made a $300 in-kind donation to the coalition in the form of "phone bank supplies."

But, in an interview with Public Eye, Mr. Davies's constituency assistant Megan Mckinney said, "I can tell you right now nothing was donated from this particularly office because we didn't exist during the municipal election. Our first day was December 15. It sounds like it was a clerical error on the part of COPE. It sounds like what's happened is they identified the constituency office as opposed to the constituency association."
