Hearing about the NDP returning $45,000 in campaign contributions from the Mainland Nova Scotia Construction and Trades Council because they were illegal, made us very interested in looking at the list of campaign contributions which is available from Elections NS for the period Jan 1, 2007 to Dec 31, 2007
The Chronicle Herald says this is the latest report from Elections Nova Scotia. It was published by Elections NS in June ’08.
The Mainland Nova Scotia Building & Construction Trades Council gave $5,000 that year. Guess they didn’t know this trick that year and wanted to increase that just a wee bit this year.
We did a further search for other Union contributions to the NDP and found that:
Halifax & Dartmouth District Labour Council gave $2,310
Halifax Professional Firefighters Local 268 IAFF gave $345
Bakery, Confectionery & Tobacco Workers Union, Local 446 – $250
BCTW Union Local 446 gave $50
Canadian Union of Public Employees gave $5,000
International Association Of Fire Fighters gave $5,000
International Union Operating Engineers – $143.52
Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture – $80
Nova Scotia Federation Of Labour – $4,943.52
Nova Scotia Home Builders Association $500.00
Nova Scotia Teachers Union – $800
Service Employees International Union – $5,000
Not that there is anything wrong with that.
On the other hand the NS & PEI Regional Council of Carpenters, Millwrights & Allied Workers gave $500 to the PCs.
If you want to see who made donations from Wolfville you can use that as a search term in the find box at the top of the pdf document.
