Liberal fundraising doubles other parties

What I immediately found disgusting is at top of Liberal donors list:
Bell Aliant: $4555.20

The same company that Ghiz gov gave untendered rural internet deal to. Which is screwing rural islanders with outrageous internet prices for slow internet ($66.45 before tax per month for 1.5mbps). Of course they have no problem sending me pamplets about cheap faster internet that I can't get...

Oddly Eastlink gave them ~$2000. I guess since they are in power you gotta give them donation favours even if they screw you.

$90 grand was contributions not exceeding $250 (so probably mostly individuals).

I wonder how many PNP recipients are on there giving back. Anyone do a cross list check?

Corporations should be banned from donating. With such a small province, the "scratch my back I'll scratch yours" is very easy.

Sorry had to rant when I saw the news article and Bell Aliant.

If corporations were denies from donating,the companies could just donate in the employees names.
I would rather see the names of companies and people who donate published in the media.
If a party is wanting to represent the taxpayer then said party should be open to any investigation of where their funding is obtained.

Wow. $4555 is incredibly insignificant. If that's all it costs to buy preferential treatment around here, allow me to go get my chequebook. And it's tax deductible!
