Something Political...

PM Harper with other G-8 Leaders during the
Last summit.

Today received an email from the Conservative Party, after a conversation with volunteer fundraiser that we could have an Election before the year’s end. Being a long-time Card-Carrying Party Member, we are, along with other parties members, the voters and the General Public, time to again participate in our democratic duty of electing our next Government if an election is called.

Since our election campaign expense now has to come from only two sources; from individual contribution of citizens, subject to limits and from the Government, it is imperative that we support the process. But donating to a Candidate or to a Party or to a Party Association, an individual is not only doing his or her share in making Democracy works, but get back part of his contribution from the Government in the form of Tax Refunds of Reduction of Tax Payable..

And here is the formula for Tax Credit of political Contributions.

The refund (or reduction in tax payable) depends only on the amount donated and not on taxable income. One only needs to file a tax return in order to receive it. The 2005 tax credit formula is:

for contributions between 0 and $400, you will get back 75%;
for contributions between $400 and $750, you will get back $300 plus 50% of the amount over $400;
for contributions over $750, you will get back $475 plus 33 1/3% of the amount over $750 up to a maximum of $650 annually.

Maximum individual Limits including Candidates... $5400 annually...


Dear Mr. Vic ... .....

Thank you for your generous contribution of $( amount) when we spoke to you on the phone on Saturday, July 28, 2007.


St├ęphane Dion and his "new" team are confused, divided and for themselves: they will not get things done for families and taxpayers.

It seems all but inevitable that unwanted and unnecessary election will be forced on Canadians in 2007. Your generous gift is helping us be prepared to stop St├ęphane Dion.

As a minority government, we can't prevent an unwanted election. But we can prepare for victory.

Thank you once again for your generous contribution and your on-going support of the Conservative Party of Canada.
