The Liberal Party: making up donation figures

... Because, why bother with your real fundraising numbers when you could just make up a number?

The Liberal Party has an opportunity to "win" dinner with Justin Trudeau, because apparently having dinner with Justin Trudeau is something worth winning for as little as $5.  (Maybe over dinner he can regale you with his economic plan, his jobs plan, his tax plan, and his environmental plan. Please, let us know when you find out because we're all waiting too.)

A friend pointed out that the script behind the fundraising counter in the top left corner (it was at $181,501 at the time I started writing this) is simply set to auto-update approximately $9 every six seconds.

So it's not that the Liberal Party actually raised $300 in the time it took me to write this, but they sure can dream.
