112 Organizations in BC gave money to the BC Liberals and the NDP in 2012

Earlier today the three independent MLAs running for re-election, Bob Simpson, Vicki Huntingdon and John Van Dongen, released a press release about electoral finance reform focusing on all the corporations and organizations that gave money to both the NDP and Liberals in 2012.  They data the refer to is some work that I have done looking at the 2012 electoral financing reports released on Friday by Elections BC.

This is a list of the 112 corporations, industry associations and unions that donated money to both the NDP and the Liberals in 2012.    The Liberals raised $1,276,534.97 from this group and the NDP $663,130.

Please note, I collated all this data from the information at Elections BC.   I combined multiple donations where it was clearly the same organization.   There are some organizations that I did not include because I was not certain they were one and the same.

The list of who is willing to fund both major parties is a very interesting one to read, certainly the oil and gas sector seems to have become politically non-partisan and willing to finance any party that is government or about to be government.
