Mr. Speaker, we have uncovered the top 10 lines used by Liberal fundraisers in their successful efforts to squeeze money from prospective businesses.
Line number 10: If you give it, the cabinet ministers will come.
Line number 9: Never have so many given so much for such obvious rewards.
Line number 8: Come on, everybody is doing it.
Line number 7: The end justifies the means.
Line number 6: It is better to give so that you can receive.
Line number 5: The answer is in the mail and trust me, you will like the answer.
Line number 4: These opportunities usually only come once in a lifetime, although in this case it comes once every time you apply for a grant.
Line number 3: If you think we can be influenced by as little as $3,000 or $4,000, let me tell you this to your face, you are right.
Line number 2: Of course it may be that you will receive the grant without a donation. I mean, anything is possible.
The number one line used by federal fundraisers to squeeze money out of prospective business people: Cheques are fine, but cash is better.
