Stephen Harper is ending the modest subsidy program for political parties, not for partisan advantage, but to use Canadians’ tax dollars with great care, especially in a time of fiscal restraint, when families are struggling to make ends meet.  This is especially urgent when public funds must be carefully rationed for building fake lakes and gazebos, for flying government ministers from their vacation spots, and for procuring big-ticket military jets through untendered contracts whose final multi-billion dollar price tag is accelerating faster than the planes ever will.
