The British Columbia Real Estate Association made a big showing at the provincial New Democrats' recent business community-targeted fundraiser, purchasing five tables at a cost of $2,500 each for a total of $12,500. In a brief email, an association spokesperson pointed out the realtors are non-partisan - having also attended the Liberals' Dinner Under the Sails. This isn't first time the association has contributed to the New Democrats. Donations totalling $6,575 were made to the party between 2005 and 2009, according to Elections British Columbia. The Victoria Real Estate Board also recently sent two foursomes to attend the Fleming, Horgan and Popham fourth annual MLA golf tournament - which was held at the Cordova Bay Golf Club on September 17. The price for a foursome was $900.
