A question for Mr. Poilievre

Cher Pierre,

You say the right to funnel money from the national party to the local party for purely national advertising, and get reimbursed with taxpayer money for that spending, is somehow possibly equated with "free speech".

If that's so then why, pray tell, did your Conservative Party make it illegal for me to donate more than $1000 to the political party of my choice? Isn't that impugning my right to free speech?

Are you and Mr. Harper saying the Conservative Party's right to free speech, and the right to free speech of third-party groups like the National Citizen's Coalition, is somehow more important than the right of an individual Canadian citizen to free speech, or less worth defending? Why is that exactly Pierre?

Just curious.
