5. Municipal Campaign Finance Reform

Calgary continues to seek campaign finance and disclosure rules appropriate for a city of Calgary's size. City electoral wards are nearing the size and population of federal electoral districts yet are under the same campaign finance rules that apply to a summer village. Despite changes in Provincial legislation governing the financing of campaigns, there are still concerns surrounding maximum donation amounts in an election cycle, campaign spending limits, rules on surpluses/debts, and disclosure of donations.

Question 5: What will you do to improve campaign finance and disclosure legislation for Calgary and other municipalities in Alberta?
