More PC Illegal Donations


Illegal donation to the Alberta PCs that hasn't been reported by the media in Alberta.

ALBERTA BEVERAGE CONTAINER RECYCLING CORP is a provincially incorporated not-for-profit product stewardship corporation.

They Donated $23,004 to the PC's from 2005 to 2010. They are a provincial crown corporation under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act according to their own website. These donations recipients include Ron Stevens, Lindsay Blackett, George Rogers, Hector Goudreau, Iris Evans and of course the Alberta PC party itself.
http://www.abcrc.com/about/ <-- Details on how they exist under the government.

So this means... every time you pay a bottle deposit you are donating to the PC Party.


"The BCMB and its two collection system agents; the Alberta Beverage Container Recycling Corporation (ABCRC) and the Alberta Beer Container Corporation (ABCC), work in partnership with the Alberta Bottle Depot Association (ABDA) to ensure the collection and processing of used beverage containers."

  1. ABCRC is not a crown corp. Owned by beverage manufacturers (private owners).

  2. Click the link above:

    "ALBERTA BEVERAGE CONTAINER RECYCLING CORPORATION (ABCRC) is a provincially incorporated not-for-profit product stewardship corporation."

    This is the opening sentence on their website.

    This means by law they can not contribute to any political party.

    Alsion Redford admitted that she is employing people to troll social media, you wouldn't happen to be one of those would you?

  3. The first reply to this post is BS'ing.

    This link here

    http://www.bcmb.ab.ca/about-bcmb.html

    Excerpts from that link

    "The Beverage Container Management Board (BCMB) is responsible for the collection and recycling of beverage containers throughout Alberta. It operates within policy parameters set out by the Minister of Alberta Environment."

    and

    "Established as a management board under the Beverage Container Recycling Regulation pursuant to Section 175 of the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act on December 1, 1997."

    Also and here is where the ABCRC comes in

    "The BCMB and its two collection system agents; the Alberta Beverage Container Recycling Corporation (ABCRC) and the Alberta Beer Container Corporation (ABCC), work in partnership with the Alberta Bottle Depot Association (ABDA) to ensure the collection and processing of used beverage containers."

  4. I'll add one more thing.

    I like the org chart here http://www.bottlebill.org/legislation/canada/alberta.htm that has ABCRC equal to Alberta Liquor & Gaming Commission in the whole beverage container collecting scheme.
