"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.
