While I'd like to see the end of corporate/union monies flowing to gov't officials; that is a pipe dream that will never happen. Even if such reform was enacted; money would somehow still flow to those in power.
Works for us, this guy lost his cabinet post and got thrown out of parliament (resigned is polite, it was not really a choice thing) for "accepted tens of thousands of dollars in ineligible donations in the 2011 election", oh and he did lose in his effort to reclaim the seat in a by election.
Neither corporations nor unions are allowed to donate, nor are you allowed to give yourself a loan as was tried with this fellow.
The biggest advantage I see is five week elections... its all they can afford. }};-D

Poll shows Liberals likely to defeat Penashue in Labrador by-election
OTTAWA — The Globe and Mail
Published Thursday, Apr. 04 2013, 6:00 AM EDT
Peter Penashue may have gotten the jump on his rivals in the hope of reclaiming his seat in the federal riding of Labrador but a new poll suggests the Liberals are so far ahead, they are likely unstoppable.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Conservatives have expressed much faith in Mr. Penashue, a cabinet minister who resigned his seat last month after admitting his campaign accepted tens of thousands of dollars in ineligible donations in the 2011 election.
