Contribution data for all seven Ontario Liberal leadership candidates started to become public Friday, and I had some time today to put the contribution data in a JQuery data table, a fairly painless way of presenting a sortable, searchable database/spreadsheet online. We last used it for our firearm story back in the summer. I also added donation categories (union, corporate, etc.) which has to be done manually but isn’t as much work as it sounds. Our version also has all the candidates in a one-stop-shop format, which makes it easier to understand. We’ll be building this feature out as the campaign progresses.
