According to the media, Canadians don't mind being robbed

Alan from Occam's Carbuncle has been researching GPC Research, the company employed to conduct the latest poll indicating Liberal support is up since Martin's grovelling and snivelling national address. Using Andrew's invaluable Elections Canada search tool, Alan comes up with the following:

Name of contributor -Year-Class-Name of political party-Donation $

GPC Canada Inc. 2001 Business Liberal Party $15,625.88

GPC Canada Inc. 2002 Business Liberal Party $6,770.11

GPC International Holdings Inc. 2003 Business Liberal Party $6,251.12

GPC Canada Inc. 2003 Business Liberal Party $4,214.70

GPC International 2001 Business PC $1,234.00

GPC International Holdings Inc. 2001 Business Liberal Party $626.82

And here's what turns up for Strategic Counsel, which also has the Liberals ahead:

Name of contributor-Year-Class-Name of political party-Donation $

Gregg, Kelly, Sullivan & Woolstencroft The Strategic Counsel 2003 Business
Liberal Party $4,214.70
Alan also adds to his lexicon:
budget n. a formal allocation of finite resources; political (Canada): an ad hoc government financial plan presented on a bi-monthly basis whereby the votes and quiescence of the many are purchased with the monies of the few, typically inducing a feeling of opiate warmth and security in the former and apoplexy in the latter.
