Mark, what's undemocratic about a member of the NDP (or any party for that matter) running for council, and recieving support from those who also support the provincial or federal parties?

I fully support the recommendation by CATCH to ban all union and corporate donations, in hopes of making the civic process more transparent. But really, the actual laws have to be changed before we can expect everyone to abide by them- if a candidate wants to accept donations for a campaign from a union or corporation, that's legal right now, whether we like it or not. So what are the "self-proclaimed watchdogs of democracy" supposed to report?

Scott Duvall's silence may be deafening, but other than attacking your opponents, I haven't heard anything of substance from you yet.
