Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown is working to pay off debt from his failed federal Conservative leadership bid.
He hosted a fundraiser last week charging $1,700 per ticket to help pay off unspecified expenses.
But he’s doing without the help of the party or the ability to issue tax receipts to donors.
Brown’s team has set up its own account to collect donations, which are ineligible for the federal tax credit for political contributions.
The Conservative party confirmed it is not accepting contributions to Brown’s campaign, as its own rules prevent it from doing so for candidates that did not meet its leadership contest criteria.
Brown was ousted from from the Federal leadership campaign last year over allegations he violated the rules and possibly the Canada Elections Act.
He’s denied the allegations.
