Proudly Surrey challenges other parties to publish donor lists

Surrey council candidate for Proudly Surrey, Kongyuy Felix said that his slate was impressed by Vancouver mayoral candidate Kennedy Stewart’s pledge “to publicly release his donor list at regular intervals until election day.”

“We are following his lead and adopting that policy.”

Proudly Surrey believes that in order to be truly accountable to the people of Surrey, they need to be open about who is supporting them. In order to show this they have published all donations above $100. While all these donations are a matter of public record and would be published by Elections BC, this would not occur until well after voting day. “This list will be updated on a regular basis.”

Proudly Surrey council candidate Parshotam Goel said that they are now “challenging the other major Surrey parties and slates, Surrey First, Integrity Now and Safe Surrey to do the same. If they can’t deliver transparency on the campaign trail, I don’t see much chance of them delivering it in government.”

Here is the list of all donations over $100 to Proudly Surrey.
