OTTAWA — The federal Conservative party may have lost the October 2015 federal election, but its fundraising machine remains the king of the hill.

First quarter data released by Elections Canada show the federal Conservatives raked in almost $5.5 million through the first three months of 2016, more than the Liberals and New Democrats combined.

The governing Liberals collected just over $4 million — but may take some comfort in beating the Conservatives in the absolute numbers of donors who chipped in.
