      A North Shore councillor hasn't given up on his efforts to shed more light on political contributions linked to development company executives and their associates.

      Last night, the District of North Vancouver council deferred a motion to direct staff to ensure fellow members of council disclose if they've received donations from a company's "owners, directors, officers, employees, and family members of such persons".

      The motion's author, Coun. Jim Hanson, remains optimistic that council will instruct staff to recommend a procedure by which this information would be made publicly available in advance of votes on development applications.

      In a tweet this morning, Hanson thanked community members who've sent messages of support for his motion to the mayor and council.

      He also stated in his tweet that the motion would be back before council "very soon".

      "Our cause is worthy," Hanson added.
