Wildrose response to Question 5

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

Wildrose is interested in working with Calgary and other municipalities on the kinds of changes they would like to see related to campaign finance and disclosure. There is certainly room to improve reporting, transparency and conflict of interest rules.

Provincially Wildrose has attempted to prohibit large corporate and union donations but has been blocked by the 44-year old PC majority in the Legislature.

Good municipal financing rules can help make the playing field fairer for challengers, opening up the system to new ideas and perspectives. Increased impartiality and transparency improves the trust and confidence of citizens that their representatives are operating under a fair system.
