Follow the Money: 2003 Election
How did VoteToronto compile this data?VoteToronto's Follow the Money 2003 records compile donation records submitted by candidates and obtained from the City Clerk. At present, there is a photocopying fee charged per page to obtain the records from the City Clerk, and the city does not publish detailed election finance records. VoteToronto obtained the primary dataset in partnership with Professor Robert MacDermid, Associate Professor, Political Science, York University.
The campaign finance records obtained from the City Clerk were electronically scanned using text-recognition software. Campaign finance records compile donations of $100 and greater, which candidates are required to report under the Municipal Elections Act. Records are listed as reported by candidates, where the category of corporate, union or individual donations are self-selected by donors. Because the records are compiled from electronic scans of documents using text-recognition software, there may be some minor inaccuracies in the donor listings. However, every effort has been made to ensure that listings are accurate and complete, and corrections have been made to errors where found. If there are any problems found in the data records, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
