Citing procedural fairness, an Alberta judge has rescinded a $10,000 fine levied by the province's election commissioner against a man who exceeded the legal political donation limit.

In 2018, Glen Rumpel donated $9,000 to the United Conservative Party, exceeding the maximum donation of $4,000 that was established in 2016.

The $5,000 over the limit was returned by the party as required by law. Rumpel claimed he was unaware of the newer donation limits.
