When Stephen Harper killed Jean Chretien's per vote party subsidy the public then knew that they had an undemocratic dictator who was going to use any trick to keep power. The per vote subsidy encourages voting. It means that even if your candidate/party loses you can still help them by voting. It is truly good! To those politicians and pundits who cynically put negative spin on this beneficial mechanism I would say, "So you would do the same as Stephen Harper did the day he stabbed our democracy in the back?"
Thank you very much for your thoughtful feedback. And this is a great way to look at the per-vote allowance! With the new legislation everyone is able to support their political party of their choosing. We greatly appreciate your support!
