Canadian campaign finance bill nears introduction

Canada.com reports

Liberal ministers will get a chance at a cabinet meeting Tuesday to discuss a controversial bill about political donations before it's tabled the next day in the House of Commons, party sources say.
The bill is expected to cap corporate and union donations to political parties at $1,000, a source in Prime Minister Jean Chretien's office said Monday. Response to the proposed legislation at last week's cabinet retreat was "pretty positive," a government source said. But there was debate among ministers over some key points, not least the proposed cap, the source said.
