UCP requests investigation into NDP relationship with provincial union bosses

Today, the United Conservative Party of Alberta (UCP) released a letter it sent to Elections Alberta regarding possible violations of the Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure Act.

The letter questions Rachel Notley and the Alberta New Democratic Party’s (NDP) relationship with provincial union bosses, and their ongoing election activity.

You can read the letter in full here, and a follow-up letter here.

“The law is clear that affiliated third parties are prohibited from undertaking advertising to benefit the NDP or any other party, but evidence shows this is happening right now in Alberta,” said Dustin van Vugt, executive director of the UCP. “These two union organizations are spending tremendous amounts of money to promote Rachel Notley and the NDP without disclosing their donors, and the leadership of these unions hold dual roles with the unions they work for and the NDP, which we believe is an egregious conflict of interest that violates the law.”

The UCP is eager to work with Elections Alberta to help with their review and investigation.
