Jim Prentice's response to Question 5
Question 5: What will you do to improve campaign finance and disclosure legislation for Calgary and other municipalities in Alberta?
You also asked about municipal election finance reform. I would like to learn more about this issue and understand where the recent review process may have fallen short. In general, I believe that our provincial processes work well and that municipal finance and disclosure rules should meet the same standards as the Provincial system. I am quite open to hearing Calgary’s position as well as those of Edmonton and the major municipal organizations.
