BCGEU THINKS ELECTION RULES DON'T APPLY
August 21, 2012
VANCOUVER - Today, BC Liberal MLA John Les called on the BCGEU to admit they broke third party election advertising limits in the by-elections this past April instead of appealing Election BC’s $3 million fine.
“It’s no secret the BCGEU would prefer to have a BC NDP government, but that’s no excuse for breaking the rules,” said Les. “When the by-elections were called the BCGEU had a choice to pull their ads in support of the BC NDP, instead they decided the rules didn’t apply to them.”
The BCGEU is appealing Election BC’s $3 million fine for exceeding its $3,000 spending limit by nearly $160,000 per electoral district.
