First we endure the ridiculous federal campaign laws forcing taxpayers to foot the bill for political campaigns, now saskatchewan residents must tolerate the same thing. Legislation currently being considered will give prison inmates the right to vote, make it easier to vote with absentee ballots, and force taxpayers to pick up the tab for up to half a candidate's expenses. The next election tab could reach way beyond $2.4 million. How bad is it when taxpayers subsidize campaign lies and manipulation? Good grief.
