BC NDP haul in record $672K donation from US based labour union

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

BC’s political donations system with no limits on corporate, individual or union donations is a problem. And the BC Liberals cash for access style dinners are awful but the hypocrisy of the BC NDP demanding an end to these types of donations while accepting $672K in 2016 from the Steelworkers Union alone, is incredible. 

When digging deeper into the $672K from the United Steelworkers it appears as though around $270,000 of it came from their Pittsburgh head office.

Watch as I show you how I found out that 40% of this single year record donation came from the U.S. to interfere in our BC election.

But that's not the end of it. Sources have told me the Steelworkers Union is also paying the salaries of two NDP campaign staffers.

This is the number one issue the BC Liberals and Premier Clark just don’t want to talk about this election, but should they hold on to power on May 9th, Premier Clark needs to embrace the spirit of former Prime Minister Stephen Harper when he reformed the political donation rules federally.

Completely ban corporate and union donations, then create an individual cap on yearly donations.

It should come as no surprise to many that left wing unions are propping up their membership to vote in these losers. You name it,(teachers unions,emergency services unions,trade unions etc.). All these scumbags couldn’t care less about their country,province or municipality. Time to unite the right to overcome their politically correct B.S. Look what labour has done to the U.K. We have generations of indoctrinated voters ever since Mao Trudeau Sr. took office. Sonny Boy Flake(or is that Castro Jr.?), is just finishing the job that his traitorous “father?” started.

The Federal NDP also took several hundred thousand in donations from a few unions a few years back even though it was illegal. Of course, the media barely reported on it.

These donations should also be made illegal in each province.

Excellent reporting Chris !!!
BTW…. in the last municipal election, in Burnaby, there were two parties running full slates… the NDP franchise and a party made strictly of community members…. Both parties raised about $30K… but in addition, the NDP franchise raised about $400,000, mainly from public trade unions and property developers… 30k vs 430k, and the result, a total sweep by the NDP franchise who are again pulling the levers of power without a single opposition member. to add insult to injury, the NDP franchise has a whole campaign machine with their provincial and federal comrades… it the exact same people running the show in all election of all 3 levels of government. With this firepower, they we able to elect a school board trustee who is young immigrant woman had never attended BC public school and has no children of school age…. her only claim to fame was being a secretary of a federal NDP MP… After being a school board trustee for about 2 years, she is now running as an NDP candidate in the provincial election… in fact, 3 or 4 of the elected municipal NDP franchise members are running provincially.

In summary, the NDP rhetoric is complete duplicity.. given the change, the NDP does and will do far worse than any other party.. endless complaining about the things that they themselves do in excess. All rhetoric and no substance.

Great report Christopher.

I don’t think banning or limiting corporate and union donations will work without also banning 3rd party political ads and activities.
You have literally billions of Canadian taxpayer dollars heading overseas for “humanitarian” reasons. Is anyone naïve enough to think none of that money is being funneled to Tides, Dogwood and similar entities to promote the alt-left narrative?
Connect the dots people. This is one of the main ways Trudeau and his NDP cronies are using YOUR tax dollars to surreptitiously further their globalist/climate change agenda. It’s called election “rigging” with YOUR money.
