Hi Stefan,

We hope you are having a great campaign so far! CHP Executive
Director Vicki Gunn has instructed me that we are to bill the
setup and development of the candidate pages on CHP.ca to the
candidate's campaign as per Elections Canada regulations.

We have crafted an invoice for your page and you may view and
pay your bill online:

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Thanks,
David Tonen and Garth Holmes

Hello? I was never told this was going to cost me
anything, and I never agreed to pay for anything!

Where does this billing thing come from?

And 80$ to post one picture, one address
and a microscopic bio? Good Lord!

I'm a webmaster myself, I do all of my web programming
for free! You can check my CHP page on the local
site:

www.chp-quebec.ca/en/election.htm

I even supply a "one-stop-shop" for all the other
candidates!

www.chp-quebec.ca/en/varia/louishebert2015.htm

For free!

I don't care about the 80$, but I'm running a "no donations--
no expenses" campaign. If I pay a single bill, I lose
my 1000$ held by Elections Canada!

If you had told me about this ahead of time, I would
have refused to have a page on the CHP web site. Our
local site is vastly sufficient.

Anyway, I'm surprised, and not pleasantly surprised,

Stefan Jetchick

Sorry, I mistakenly deleted the e-mail that the National Campaign Director (M. Peter Vogel) sent me, but my response has the relevant passage.

Hi Peter,

>> I think that you were probably the one candidate that I
>> forgot to mention the whole $75 for the web page to.

I'm afraid that it was probably not me that forgot, since
I had been planning all along to do a "no donations-no expenses"
campaign, so I would have jumped 10 feet high if I had
been told I was to be billed any amount of money.
