Mr. Speaker, if the hon. member will not explain her in and out transaction, maybe this email will. It comes from Lucy Ladouceur, who is the bookkeeper for the New Democratic Party of Canada. She said:
“—we are told by the communication folks in B.C. that these radio ads, with the candidate's personal tag at the end, therefore a local expense to be reported under the candidate's expense ceiling...For rebate purposes, we were asked to bill each campaign—in the case of Vancouver East, $2,612.”
“The good news is that the federal [MP]...will transfer $2,600 to the federal riding association, as we agreed to pay for the ads.”
That is exactly what happened: $2,600 in and $2,600 out.
