Christy Clark more illegalities & shame

More documentation on Clark, illegal donations, LNG, Kinder-Morgan ...

Thank you to Desmog, Dogwood, and of all places, the Globe and Mail!
The complaint comes on the heels of a bombshell investigation by the Globe and Mail that revealed corporate lobbyists were illegally reimbursed for contributions made to the B.C. Liberals.
Donations from Kinder Morgan staff to the BC Liberals include:
  • Ian Anderson, President, Kinder Morgan Canada: $7,300
  • Gavin Dew, Stakeholder Engagement Specialist: $13,120
  • Lexa Hobenshield, External Relations Manager: $3,725
  • Stephanie Snider, consulting lobbyist: $1,000
If Kinder Morgan reimbursed any of its staff or lobbyists for event tickets, tables at fundraisers or other political contributions, they broke the law,” Kai Nagata, communications director for Dogwood, said in a press release.
B.C. has long been criticized for having some of the weakest political donation rules in Canada. There are no restrictions on corporate, union or foreign donations and there are no limits on what individuals can contribute.
