Today marks 159 days until Election Day – and that’s also the exact number of MPs who make up our Conservative majority in the House of Commons.
But in the next election, the total number of seats in the House of Commons is going up from 308 to 338. That means simply repeating our success won’t be enough for another Conservative majority in October. This time, we’ll need to win 170 seats to form a majority, so we can keep delivering for Canadian families.
Now more than ever, contributions from our loyal supporters are critical for the success of our Party. Will you help us with a $170 donation today to help us prepare for the October 19 election?

TVA and Macleans/Rogers offers accepted, will accept up to 5 debates
Statement from Kory Teneycke, Conservative Campaign Spokesperson:
OTTAWA – “We are pleased today to accept the proposal from TVA for a French language Leaders Debate and the proposal from Macleans/Rogers for an English language Leaders Debate. These debates are to occur prior to October 19, 2015 on dates yet to be determined.
Given the increased certainty associated with the timeframe preceding a fixed election date, more debates become a practical possibility in a way that has not been the case in past elections. We believe this serves the public interest, and we are therefore prepared to participate in up to one more French debate and up to two more English debates. This would mean we are willing to participate in up to five debates total, a record in modern Canadian political history.
We have received debate proposals from a variety of print and broadcast media, as well as other organizations. We believe the diversity and innovation inherent in different debate sponsors and approaches is valuable. Therefore we have decided to decline the proposal from the Broadcast Consortium for four debates, which for practical purposes would effectively exclude other media and organizations capable of hosting debates of this nature.
We anticipate we will receive additional offers for debates over the coming weeks. We look forward to reviewing those proposals in a timely manner and will communicate further once that review is complete.”

In less than 200 days, Canadians will go to the polls.
The Prime Minister and this Conservative government have accomplished a lot for Canadians, but there’s much more to be done. That’s why we simply cannot risk letting the Liberals and NDP have the chance to reverse all the progress we’ve made.
- Only a Conservative Majority will continue the work that has led to the creation of 1.2 million net new jobs since the depths of the global recession. More Canadians are working today than ever before, but there is still a great deal of work to be done.
- Only a Conservative Majority will fight to ensure hardworking families keep more of their paycheque. We’ve reduced the federal tax burden on Canadian families to its lowest point in 50 years, and an average Canadian family is now saving more than $3,400 more each year.
- Only a Conservative Majority will carry through on our pledge to keep Canadian families safe – to rid our communities from violent repeat criminals, and protect our children and parents.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and our Conservative team are facing the biggest election in Canadian history in less than 200 days.
While we have been rapidly preparing, there is still so much more to be done. We have candidates and volunteers to recruit, campaign offices to rent, and ads to create and run. These things all cost money — which is why we need your help.
You may remember that Prime Minister Harper and our Conservative party delivered on our promise to end the per-vote subsidy, which was forcing taxpayers to subsidize the activities of political parties.
We did it because it was the right thing to do. We did it because it needed to be done.
But it also means that we now rely exclusively on the generous contributions of our supporters to pay for our election preparation.
