Politics in Canada
Apparently that Climate change stunt a while back warrants machine guns... the Mounties can't handle tasers...
yeah lets give them machine guns too! Just another way to silence the opposition by Harper or a legitimate security concern?
I knew this was not far from top of mind and I thought they might go there in the budget. Now we know they won't because it is intended as a political election plank.
We are talking about the subsidy parties get for each vote they receive.
Unfortunately, the population has bought the media Conservative party propaganda that this is some nasty subsidy and must be stopped. There is no campaign to address this.
Parties should consider an information campaign on this.
At present there are two subsidies:
1) the per vote subsidy for all Canadians.
2) an effective 75% -- a massive percentage -- subsidy for those who donate to a party.
