    During my candidacy for mayor in 2014 and my work as a third party advertiser in 2018, my campaign websites both provided a complete and contemporaneous account of all donations and expenses. This was made fairly easy, as I did not accept donations from anyone else, (only myself). I would encourage all candidates to provide a complete list of all their donors and current donations to their campaigns for inspection by the public on their websites.

    I am one of the candidates running for Councillor in the District of Sydenham.

    My campaign financial statements (including donor names) can be found on the front page of my website at http://www.RamiforCouncil.com. The information is updated on a regular basis.

    This is long overdue…..special interests, with deep pockets, have influenced our political landscape for far too long!! Why is voter turn out so low – maybe because voters feel that they have affect or input on the decisions made by elected representatives (but who are they really representing?)
