Kennedy Stewart Challenges Mayoral Candidates to Disclose Campaign Backers Before Voting Starts

Stewart publicly discloses donors to his campaign for the fourth time since launching his bid to become Vancouver’s next mayor

Vancouver - Today, independent candidate Kennedy Stewart challenged mayoral candidates Ken Sim, Wai Young, Hector Bremner and the 17 other mayoral candidates to publicly disclose the donors to their respective campaigns ahead of advance voting.

“With recent media stories about dark money and big money influence on elections, the public wants to know who is donating to the campaigns of those seeking the mayor’s chair this fall,” says Vancouver mayoral candidate Kennedy Stewart. “That’s why today I am challenging all candidates for mayor to publicly disclose who is donating to their respective campaigns before Vancouver voters head to the advance polls on October 10.”

A total of 1,195 donors contributed $123,556.95 to Stewart’s campaign between May 10 and September 24. Seven out of ten of Stewart’s donors contributed less than $100 when donating to his campaign, while the average donation was $103.40.

Existing provincial regulations governing local election campaigns require candidates for local office name all donors contributing $100 or more 90 days after the election. However, Stewart has chosen to disclose his donors ahead of the election, with today’s disclosure marking the fourth time he has publicly named his financial contributors.

In the 2014 Vancouver municipal election the leading mayoral candidates – Vision’s Gregor Robertson and the NPA’s Kirk Lapointe – disclosed their donors in the week before election day. In the same election, the Vancouver Green Party and OneCity disclosed their campaign donors ahead of advance voting, while COPE made their campaign finance disclosure public the same day as Vision Vancouver.
