Pay taxes? Then you also made a hefty political contribution this year too

Elections Canada just released the third quarter update on how many tax dollars we provided to five of Canada's 15 registered political parties.

Bloc Québécois
$727,092

Conservative Party of Canada
$2,515,737

Green Party of Canada
$310,867

Liberal Party of Canada
$2,096,926

New Democratic Party
$1,212,255

And that is only this quarter. These five political parties are in-line to requisition over $27.4-million combined from taxpayers this year alone.

If the new government is looking to cut the fat, here's a great place to start.
