UBCM Responds to Expense Limits Committee

On October 15th UBCM advised that the Legislative Assembly appointed an all-party Special Committee on Local Elections Expense Limits. Phase 1 deliberations are underway regarding the principles for establishing the relationship between elector organizations and their candidates with respect to expense limits and principles for establishing expense limits for third-party advertisers participating in local elections. 

UBCM was invited to present to the Committee as part of Phase 1 and provided a written submission on November 3, 2014.  The submission focused on the principles and recommendations that guided the work of the Local Elections Task Force that UBCM and Province of British Columbia in 2009-2010.
