Here’s a surprise.
The BC Liberals, the party that refuses to limit political contributions from corporations, made a whole bunch of money from corporations last year.
Financing reports released by Elections BC today show the Liberals raised 10 million dollars in 2014, half of that from corporate donations.
The party ended the year with a three million dollar surplus, but also has outstanding debt of $900,000.
The NDP, which has called for bans on corporate and union donations,-raised $3.5 million, the majority from individuals.
The party still has oustanding debt of $2.4 million dollars from the lead-up to the 2013 election.
The BC Green party may be an up and coming party but it is still small potatoes in money terms, raising just $300,000 last year.
