Two donors to Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro’s 2008 election campaign have produced copies of cheques they say were reimbursements paid by a small electrical company owned by his cousin. The cheques show the donors each received $1,050 from Deltro Electric Ltd. of Mississauga, Ont., two days before they made $1,000 donations to Del Mastro’s electoral district association in Peterborough.
Cheque in the amount of $1,050 drawn on an account belonging to Deltro Electric, owned by MP Dean Del Mastro’s cousin, is alleged by the cheque’s recipient, a Deltro employee, to be reimbursement for a $1,000 donation to Del Mastro’s re-campaign. Images of this cheque and others were captured by the donors’ banks when they were deposited in ATM machines. At the Citizen’s request, the donors asked their bank to produce copies of these images.

Do you think Revenue Canada is going to be doing an AUDIT to determine how the $50 showed up as an expense, and what for?
