Record Feb. 2/07 -
RIM execs among top donors to Liberals

...For 2004 to 2006, Liberal organizations have disclosed $28,623.06 in donations from RIM, while the PCs have only reported $2,301.99 in financial support from the company. Riding-association records from 2005 and 2006 are still incomplete.

Lazaridis' financial support for the provincial Liberals shows up the same year he served as chair of the party's annual Heritage Dinner, an $800-a-plate gala that raises more than $1 million.


(...)

Lazaridis sat at the head table with Premier Dalton McGuinty at last March's dinner.

Eighteen days later, McGuinty announced the government would provide $50 million in funding for each of two of Lazaridis' pet projects: the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and the University of Waterloo Institute for Quantum Computing.

I see the certified general accountants of Ontario donated over $30,000 to both the Tories and the Libs...kinda boring, thats like betting on both horses in a race.

To Zac - Nothing quite like hedging your bets.

Suppose so Brian. Just seems kinda boring to me. Oh well, I suppose I'm just more of a gambling man.

Zac, I'm glad you're still dropping by. I'm waiting for some kind of debate, but I realize you have a lot on your plate.
