Alberta's chief electoral officer will review an undisclosed donation to the nomination campaign of Justice Minister Doug Schweitzer from Steve Allan, the prominent Calgary businessman Schweitzer appointed commissioner of a public inquiry into alleged foreign-funded attacks on Alberta's oil industry.

"Now that it has been brought to our attention, we will be contacting Mr. Schweitzer to see what is going on," Drew Westwater, the province's deputy chief electoral officer, said Tuesday.

Details of the unreported donation are contained in personal emails obtained by CBC News from the court record in a legal challenge of the inquiry by Ecojustice, the environmental law charity.
