Lethbridge auto dealers who donated to Shaping Alberta’s Future

I recently came across the Elections Alberta document that showed the contributions to the SAF, including from the Motor Dealers’ Association of Alberta. Here are the Lethbridge members who donated to the SAF and helped get Jason Kenney elected.

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.

Here are the Lethbridge and area MDA members who donated to the SAF and helped get Jason Kenney elected.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
