Gregor Robertson says Vision Vancouver will disclose “list of its campaign donors” this weekend

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Vision Vancouver has responded to NPA mayoral candidate Kirk LaPointe's pledge to disclose his party's campaign donors' list by next Friday (November 7).

      Mayoral incumbent Gregor Robertson announced that Vision will beat the NPA to it by revealing "a list of its campaign donors" this weekend.

      "Releasing the list of donors supporting our campaign is just one more way Vision Vancouver is running a positive and transparent campaign, while the NPA’s Kirk LaPointe has repeatedly refused to even release a fully-costed platform," Robertson said in a news release.

      Like LaPointe, Robertson had rebuffed calls for his party to put out such a list until today (October 30).

      It wasn't immediately clear whether these lists will include dollar figures attached to the names.

      "Releasing the list of donors supporting our campaign is just one more way Vision Vancouver is running a positive and transparent campaign"

      I find this statement rather ironic.

      If the NPA had not declared their intention rot release their list you would not have seen Vision release theirs. Everything Vision is doing in this campaign is "me to".
      Every time Kirk LaPointe releases a policy or idea ,Vision jumps on the proverbial band wagon.
      That is some campaign there Gregor !

      Just wondering

      Just wondering how much Gregor will release and will he give information from the last election till now? Plus what about all the associated groups to Vision that are funded to support their agenda?

      it took Kirk LaPointe to get Gregor to finally do something right!!!

      We are Vision, so we are just better

      Seems to me Gregor's campaign strategy is simply to react and attempt to discredit everything the NPA does. This, let's wait and see what they do and then try to make em look bad, strategy will be the downfall of vision. This latest move, again initiated by the NPA, shows Vision trying again to look good by making it look like they did it first, and they are doing it better. Gregor, let me educate you on something, it doesn't matter what day your going to release this info, your still reacting to a move the NPA did first and forced you to do as well. Your playing catch up again, the story of your whole campaign so far. A campaign that will see you looking for work in less than a month.

      It is now Sunday. Did Gregor mean THIS weekend? And will he release just a list of Donors or the actual amounts of the donations?
