Website calling for corporate tax increases deemed unfit by Alberta election laws

In a press release the Alberta Federation of Labour wrote that the campaign website gave Albertans the opportunity to "explore the various ways in which the provincial government has destroyed the revenue system, and given away billions of dollars to big corporations and to very wealthy individuals."

Or at least, that's what the website was intended to do, before it was shut down.

Since the election was officially announced on Tuesday, April 7, the website has been deemed to be in violation of the Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure Act (EFCDA), which regulates third-party spending during elections.

The Alberta Federation of Labour, which maintains the website, is not allowed to register as a third-party advertiser under these rules.
