EDMONTON - Two Alberta opposition parties have formally asked the chief electoral officer to review whether a large contribution to the Tories from the Edmonton Oilers owner last spring broke election laws.

The NDP and the Wildrose say it's important to confirm that the $300,000 from billionaire Daryl Katz, his family and business associates did not all come from Katz himself.

The maximum any one person or group can contribute is $30,000.

Elections Alberta says it can act on complaints and has the power to compel documents and issue fines where appropriate.

But Elections Alberta spokesman Drew Westwater says so far the Tories' paperwork appears in order.

A Tory party spokesman has declined to give specifics on the Katz donation, but says there are documents to prove no laws were broken.
