Fourth in our BC Liberals Dirty Dozen Donations series.
These are called “cash for access” events where people willing to give big money get to hob nob with elected decision makers, leaving regular voters out in the cold, and thereby subverting our democracy.
There’s even an unofficial price list for the BC Liberals’ cash-for-access menu:
- $2,500 gets you a BC Liberal backbencher
- $5,000-$10,000 gets you Ministers or the Premier in a group setting
- $20,000 gets you into a more intimate gathering with Christy Clark
All major BC political parties other than the BC Liberals have pledged to ban corporate, union, and foreign donations and to limit individual donations. Vote for change on May 9.
If you'd like to support us in getting these stories in front of BC voters, please make a secure donation here.
