Makin' it rain on them supporters.

The Conservatives appear to have a new game show-inspired campaign tactic.

In an effort to literally show how much they claim people will pay in raised payroll deductions under the Liberal plan, the Tories have started droppin' stacks of crisp, green Elizabeth II's at campaign stops.

Cha-ching! Cha-Ching!

Some of those proposed "hikes" include increased contributions to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Employment Insurance (EI).


Don't worry, though, the Conservatives are protecting your cash.

They left the cash on the table. #CPC staff watch over it.

The Tories did the same thing in Waterloo, Ont., over the weekend.

Although the Tuesday stunt got some chuckles, not everyone was impressed with the Price is Right vibes.

WTF??!! watching #Harper on @CBCNews I feel like I'm watching the price is right without any of the fun #cdnpoli #elxn42 #elxn2015

OH and then Rob Ford showed up.

Crowd cheers for Rob Ford as he arrives at Stephen Harper event #cdnpoli #TOpoli
