Calgary’s former mayor has donated $275,000 of leftover campaign donations to local organizations. Over the last two weeks, Dave Bronconnier has distributed the money to organizations throughout the city including $100,000 to Campus Calgary — a program that educates students through on-site learning.

“This is something that I’ve always had in mind for the day when I left politics to go back to private life,” said Bronconnier in a statement.

Bronconnier’s donations represent the largest donation given by a municipal campaign team.
