News Tech: The Surrey Forward slate said that it would file a complaint with Elections BC alleging that Surrey Connect, a competing slate, had received “illegal” funding from the Keep the RCMP in Surrey initiative.

“You’re not permitted to coordinate and you’re not allowed to spend money together,” he stated. In British Columbia, it is extremely obvious that every entity, including candidates, electoral organisations, and third-party advertisers, must act independently and cannot collaborate on any project.

Campaign manager for Surrey Forward Stephen Carter declared, “This is just plain wrong.” According to the Local Election Campaign Financing Act, third-party advertisers like Keep the RCMP in Surrey are required to operate independently of candidates or elector associations.

According to a news release from Surrey Forward, each violation of the Act carries a punishment of up to $10,000, and Surrey Forward anticipates that a “investigation and repercussions” will be implemented by Elections BC before the election.

The protest from Surrey Forward was deemed “ridiculous” by Ivan Scott of KTRIS.

This is utter bullshit, Scott declared. “We supported them and conducted two separate campaigns for them. We are perceived as being alone out there. They now recognise us as, should we say, a supporter of them, which is what has happened. There is no doubt that we have registered as third-party sponsors and that we are properly adhering to Elections BC with regard to all of our campaign materials, including flyers. “I don’t know what they’re talking about, but as far as I’m concerned, we’re absolutely inside the law, and this is simply silly politics,” the speaker said.

According to Surrey Forward, “it appears that all the signatures obtained by Keep The RCMP in Surrey have been shared, either formally or informally, with Surrey Connect,” according to a press statement from the organisation. There are never any situations that call for this kind of collaboration, according to Carter.

I don’t know any of that, I don’t know what he’s talking about, and that’s a fairly major claim for him to make, Locke retorted in response. Scott’s response to Surrey Forward’s assertion regarding signature sharing was categorical.

Really, there is no substance or support for it. He remarked, “That’s crap.” Where does that come from, really?
