"Get Big Money out of Civic Politics!" Petition for Municipal Election Campaign Finance Reform We, the undersigned residents and voters of Vancouver [of British Columbia, for province-wide version], petition the Government of British Columbia to help combat actual and potential conflicts of interest in civic governance by acting promptly to: 1. prohibit donations to municipal political parties or candidates from corporations and unions; 2. permit only Canadian citizens or permanent residents to contribute; 3. place appropriate limits on personal donations and require continuous and transparent disclosure of donations above a modest threshold; 4. place appropriate limits on campaign spending; and 5. establish clear and enforceable regulations to prevent funneling of donations through third parties or other circumventions of these reforms.

    Over and over it's been proven Government can't monitor itself. We must have complete reform. Elected officials are here to work for the people not the company that donates money

    It is time to STOP the corruption by Vision at city hall. The city is run by developers and their money. The process at city hall is broken and must be fixed. Thank you for this petition.

    It's time to stop the crony graft train of businesses being forced to rent access to civic politicians to do business. Other provinces do. Time for BC to stop enabling corruption
