New Brunswick Liberals to release party leader's campaign donor list

FREDERICTON - The New Brunswick Liberal Association says it will release a list of donors to Brian Gallant's leadership campaign this week.

Executive director Ellen Creighton says the list will be released to those who make requests for it within the next couple of days.

The association's board of directors voted to disclose the list of donors during a meeting Saturday.

The association says the donations are exempt from disclosure requirements under the province's Political Process Financing Act.

Association president Britt Dysart says the party will recommend to Elections New Brunswick that leadership races be subject to the legislation's disclosure requirements.

Gallant won the Liberal leadership in October and was elected to the legislature last month in the riding of Kent.
