Manitoba Opposition Leader Brian Pallister says if he wins the April 19th election, he would look at changing the rules governing political donations. Pallister says the law governing election ficing needs to be updated, and he would consult other political parties before making amendments. (The Tory leader has already promised one specific change -- to eliminate a subsidy that parties get based on the number of votes they received in recent elections. The Tories have refused to take the money, while the NDP have garnered more than a quarter-million dollars a year over the past decade.)
