Open Victoria has reported that Dean Fortin received in excess of $55,000 for his campaign in 2008.
The top three donors were the BC Government Employees’ Union ($8,000), Canadian Auto Workers ($6,000 total), Victoria Labour Council ($4,000 total).
Together the three unions handed the mayor $18,000.
...and a razor-thin victory of around 600 votes. Let's hope that their money is pissed away this time around.
