Opposition says more illegal donations made to Alberta PC party

CALGARY – Alberta’s Opposition says a freedom-of-information request has revealed more illegal donations to the PC Party.

Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith says documents show the party accepted more than $102,000 between 2004 and 2010 from taxpayer-funded municipalities, post-secondary schools and school boards.

She says these are prohibited corporations under Alberta elections laws.

The Wildrose has written to chief electoral officer Glen Resler and provided him with the documents that the party says detail 238 instances of improper donations from 41 different parties.

Individual donations ranged from $25 to $4,000.

A report by the province’s former chief electoral officer listed 45 cases of illegal contributions to the Tories between 2010 and 2011 from towns, municipalities, school boards and other publicly funded organizations.
