One of Alberta's loudest third party advertisers received over half of its donations from nearly 20 different business entities controlled by just two businessmen.

Alberta Proud, which largely operates as a right-wing Facebook page, is connected to the same network of conservative Facebook pages known to share and amplify one another's content, a family of pages that includes Ontario Proud and more recently Canada Proud.

Filings with Elections Alberta show the group raised $165,450 during the last provincial election, with much of that money flowing from corporate donors.

But a closer look at the group's election filings shows $86,000 of its donations were sourced from a constellation of business entities directly tied to two Alberta businessmen: Calgary's Naim Ali and Edmonton's John Mather.
