I'm responding to your question. If I'm not, please tell me.
My point is that, as recognized in the Supreme Court of Canada, there's a value to people participating in the electoral debate, not only by voting or directly supporting political parties, but also by engaging in the political debate, which could include doing some advertising or other campaign activities in favour of one idea or another. That's been recognized in our law and our Constitution. The questions are this: how do you distinguish that from illegitimate foreign funding, what is the right balance, and when do the filters against foreign funding become so tight that you're preventing legitimate activity?
There are no easy answers. It's a matter of vetting it and funding a calibrated regime to deal with that issue.
