Inspired by a Liberal Party talking point:
Reports emerged surrounding legal and ethical controversies against Conservative candidates such as the candidates for Calgary Northeast and for Madawaska-Restigouche.
Still don't know what's up in Calgary Northeast, but the ref. to the NB riding is about this:
OTTAWA — A Conservative candidate in New Brunswick is being sued by two investors who allege that he owes them $15,000 from a failed business deal in the 1990s.
Gerard and Martine Dube, a retired Edmundston couple, say that Jean-Pierre Ouellet, the nominated candidate for Madawaska-Restigouche, promised them their 1992 investment was guaranteed but avoided them for years and refused to pay them until January 2006, when he was running for Parliament.
At that point, says the Dubes’ statement of claim, Mr. Ouellet gave them $400 as a first payment. Then, when he lost a tight election to the Liberal candidate, he changed his telephone number and the Dubes have not been able to contact him.
So if you lend Jean-Pierre Ouellet beer money, and he fails to win a seat in Madawaska—Restigouche, you may have problems getting your beer money back.
