Abstract

This article considers the increased regulation of political financing, including limits on donations and limits on spending. While the author is in favour of full and timely disclosure of political donations, the paper argues that this regulation potentially breaches the implied freedom of political communication protected by the Constitution. Spending is designed to communicate about political matters, and donations may also be considered to be a form of speech in this context.
