Fort McMurray–Wood Buffalo PC candidate Mike Allen is accusing his opponent of breaking the law.
Allen says Guy Boutilier broke the elections act with two advertisements during the campaign.
He says a campaign mailout and an ad in a local magazine didn’t say who paid for and authorized the ads, which the Elections Act requires.
PC association President Jim Moore is also speculating that Boutilier could have used his MLA budget to pay for the advertisements – though no evidence of that has been presented.
Boutilier says that both Allen and Fort McMurray-Conklin PC candidate Don Scott are violating a sign bylaw for the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. The maximum size for an election sign is 3 square metres. The sign located near Highway 63 is at least 20 times the allowable size.
