The campaign donation lists are in. But the news is not always news.
For their 2014 campaign, Vision Vancouver has raised $2.25 million dollars, and it’s no surprise that the development industry is Vision’s biggest donor by far. (The $2.2m does not include the $25,000 plates at a private fundraiser hosted in March by ‘condo king’ Bob Rennie, which would have raised up to $1.25 million.) The NPA has raised $2.1 million.
COPE has raised $60,000 in campaign donations, and there are excellent reasons for this modest sum. COPE does not accept donations from developers, renovictors, union-busters or conservative think tanks. Our full list of donors is here.
On November 15th, vote for a Vancouver you can afford.
