One of the companies involved in defending the Conservative MPs who are having their riding wins challenged by the Council of Canadians and citizens of six ridings affected by fraudulent Elections Canada robocalls, is in financial difficulty.
In documents filed in U.S. bankruptcy court, iMarketing Solutions Group Inc. (IMSGI) lists the Canada Revenue Agency as well as the governments of Quebec, Nova Scotia and Manitoba among its creditors.
The company, through its subsidiary Responsive Marketing Group, continues to work as the Conservative Party’s telemarketing fundraiser. In the last election, RMG made millions of voter contact calls to identify Tory supporters and get them out to vote.
National Revenue Minister Gail Shea’s campaign in Prince Edward Island was among the 90 Conservative campaigns that hired RMG to make voter-contact calls during the election. She paid the company $7,500 for services, her financial return shows.
Officials in Shea’s department will now be responsible for collecting the money RMG owes the federal government after the party emerges from creditor protection.
RMG has been in the news quite a bit more than they’d care to be, I think.
