Non-transparency and corruption

The government of the City of Vaughan has been plagued by politicking and many instances of corruption tied in with the interests of developers and real estate speculation. Vaughan has been called the City of the Rich and Infamous by the media. Over the last decade, virtually all Vaughan communities have repeatedly called for greater transparency of politicians and the enforcement of penalties on noncompliant politicians and bureaucrats who have abused the system.

1. Have you received contributions to your current campaign from developers presently conducting business with the City of Vaughan?

2. Will you uphold greater transparency, and practice it, by providing the public with a statement that openly discloses details of your major financial backers, in particular those which are developers? Will you make this open disclosure before the October 25th election?

3. Will you pledge that in your tenure, if you get elected, you will not accept any financial contributions from any company or individual (friend or relation) conducting business with the City of Vaughan?

4. [FOR MAYORAL CANDIDATES ONLY:] Will you pledge that in your tenure, if you get elected, you will not permit any member of your staff or any Councillor to receive financial contributions from any company or individual(friend or relation) conducting business with the City of Vaughan?

5. [FOR MAYORAL CANDIDATES ONLY:] Will you pledge that in your tenure, if you get elected, you will not give City contracts to members of your family, or to any company or individual (friend or relation) who made donations to your campaign? And that, any such friends or relations, will only obtain City contracts by open bids?
