In 2018, we heard about Shaping Alberta’s Future, a political action committee that supported Jason Kenney’s election campaign and was heavily financed by the Motor Dealers’ Association of Alberta.
In a letter sent out to its members in September 2018, the MDA indicated that they had donated $100,000 to the SAF, that they encouraged their members to donate $5,000 each to the SAF, and that they had a goal of raising $1,000,000 for the SAF.
I recently came across the Elections Alberta document that showed the contributions to the SAF, and they SAF reached $1.1 million in 2018. Granted, not all donations were from MDA members. But lots were.
