There are signs of growing momentum for the Conservatives, as newly released fundraising numbers show a huge surge. In Quarter 3 of 2020 (July – September), the Conservatives raised $5.6 million. Those donations came from about 40,000 people. Notably, that number doesn’t include money raised by the leadership candidates. For example, Erin O’Toole raised $2 million in total, meaning the party was both pulling in donations for candidates and the party itself. So far, the NDP and Liberals have not released their numbers, though they are expected to be far lower. In particular, the NDP has been doing terrible when it comes to fundraising under Jagmeet Singh’s weak leadership.
