New York's Campaign Finance system can remedy Ontario's developer funded politics

Introduction: 

This is an overview of New York’s Campaign Finance System. Its purpose is to provide an understanding of how donations transparency and dollar matching could work within the context of Ontario’s Municipal Elections Act, to help ensure those running our municipal government are doing their residents’ business, not their own.

The Brennan Center For Justice work “Small Donor Matching Funds: The NYC Election Experience” (38 pages) has been condensed and interleaved with notes about Ontario municipal elections and how they could be reformed to correct our developer funded politics.
