More Dirty Business: Who Funds Wind Concerns Ontario, Part II

According to Elections Ontario, if you want to spend over $500 getting word out on your issues during a provincial election, you have to register as a third party advertiser.  We know that Wind Concerns Ontario, the anti-wind-energy group with connections to Climate Change Denialists, has bought billboards:
But they have not, as yet, registered as third party players.

Now, when you register, you have to give certain information that eventually becomes public, including the sources of your funding.  So, if WCO plays the game according to Hoyle, in six months we find out how "grass roots"  they really are. 

So far, though, they don't appear to be living up to their obligations.  Who knows why not?
