For the second time in a year, the NDP has run afoul of political financing laws.
Elections Canada has ordered the NDP to pay back money it collected from unions who sponsored events at the party's national convention last year.
The party, which has criticized the Conservative government for a lack of transparency, offered no details on how much it paid back or to whom. One event, a dinner with late leader Jack Layton and Nova Scotia Premier Darrell Dexter, was sponsored by the Public Service Alliance of Canada.
This party has NO regard for Democracy or transparency.. Hypocrytes! The SECOND time! In a year! How much did that "service" cost for Jack?!?! Thats right... on your dime..
