Q: I subscribed but I don't see any emails from Rick. Did you get my registration?

Q: I don't live in Edmonton Strathcona or even in Alberta. Can I still support Rick?
A: Absolutely! There is no restriction on donating to a different federal riding from the one you live in as long as you don't exceed the federal donation limit ($1625 per year). All other rules still apply, so please ensure your donation is made using your personal funds and not a corporate credit card. Edmonton Strathcona is a battleground riding so your donation is vital to being competitive.
