'Who Really Runs BC?"
politicians had to wear their corporate sponsorship?
Submitted by Dermod Travis, IntegrityBC
is delivering a postcard to homes in Chilliwack that depicts BC
premier Christy Clark as a NASCAR race car driver in a uniform
splashed with the corporate logos of donors to her 2011 leadership
Each logo represents a donation of more than $7,500. Together they
represent over $200,000 in donations and are on top of other
donations these same companies may have made to the BC Liberal party
The postcard is part of IntegrityBC's province-wide “Who really runs
BC?” campaign to reform BC's electoral finance laws which is calling
for a ban on corporate and union funding of political parties, a cap
on personal donations and a Citizen's Assembly to study and make
binding recommendations on a host of additional reforms.
organization has devoted a section of its website
www.integritybc.ca to the
issue which includes downloadable posters, a brochure, backgrounder
and an extensive resource centre with additional reports, surveys,
court judgements and videos.
For British Columbians who already support IntegrityBC's position an
electronic petition is online, as is a downloadable petition for
sharing at workplaces, community centres, churches and other
*IntegrityBC* is a non-partisan organization championing
accountability and integrity in BC politics. By empowering British
Columbians, IntegrityBC hopes to change politics in BC letting
citizens regain their trust in government.
