IntegrityBC congratulates NDP leader Adrian Dix for renewing the BC NDP’s call for a ban on corporate and union donations to political parties in the province. Dix is honouring the pledge that the NDP made in its 2009 platform.

Dix made the call during a media scrum last Wednesday while responding to questions over the annual filings of B.C.’s political parties which showed the Liberals receiving $5 million in corporate donations in 2011 and the NDP $830,000 in union donations.

With the NDP’s renewed call, four out of five of B.C.’s major political parties are now on record supporting such a ban, including BC First, the BC Greens and BC Conservatives. The BC Liberals continue to oppose the idea.

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.
