Subsidies to Political partys must stay.
Political party subsidies were put in place to level the playing field so that political parties get funding for every vote they get. Harper again is putting this into the spotlight for silly reason's saying that it isn't fair to Canadian tax payers. That's silly the whole point political parties get 2 dollars per vote is to support small and large parties for having support rather than supporting the party that has the most richest people in it. In this circumstance it helps parties like the Green Party that almost got 1 million votes in the last election, but no seats it gives these small parties finical support, because they proven that this party has a strong amount of support in the country. Eliminating this subsidy would mean that small parties wouldn't get funding and big parties that have already a lot of money would be able to silence the smaller parties. We need to keep the subsidy it is important to allow the people to have voice in how in a election is done when they vote, but Harper would like to silence the Green party the NDP and the Bloc in the next election. this 27 million dollar subsidy is will do little to nothing to reduce the 55,000,000,000 dollar deficit the Conservatives gave us. How about instead of giving Oil companies high tax cuts to reduce the deficit instead of a subsidy that supports political balance in our election.
