Inside the Liberal leadership fundraising figures, with Trudeau far in the lead

As he prepared to exit the Liberal leadership race two weeks ago, a defeated Marc Garneau took to the podium and declared "numbers don't lie."

Mr. Garneau was referring to a poll of Liberal party supporters, which showed he had 15 per cent support against Justin Trudeau's 72 per cent. But that's just one metric showing Mr. Trudeau's dominance in the race. This week, we caught our first official glimpse of yet another: donations raised by Liberal party candidates. The results would surely shake the confidence of any contender.

Below, find a breakdown of these results by candidate, including the number of donors, average and total amount raised.
