Smart move towards healthier politics

Despite the griping in the media, this is an important and historic move for BC. Yes it is seems lousy for public dollars to have to be used for campaigns, but it gets reduced over time and helps to eliminate the distorting factors of unchecked private contributions. Besides if we want a fair playing field we can't have unchecked contributions. In my mind, what is a greater use of quite a small amount of public dollars than helping to ensure fairer campaigns.

Thank you for your feedback Scott! I agree that when it comes down to choice, i'd rather have people fund parties through their votes than allow vested interests to call the shots .. the most important thing is to get rid of corporate and union donations now!
