I think I'll take it from another angle. There's a group that wants to participate in a Canadian election. That group has revenues from many sources over many years, so the difficulty is untangling.... In some cases, there may be, in that revenue stream, some foreign sources.
The value of the participation, of course, is the value of participation in a democratic society. What we certainly want to avoid is the case of a foreign entity funding a third party to influence the voting process. There are several measures in this bill to do that. But when you're getting into the more grey zones of the commingling of money, it's a trickier nut to crack.
