A waste of $900G and 3000 votes

The federal election call pre-empted by-elections in Westmount- Ville-Marie and St. Lambert. This meant that 3119 votes were cast in advance polls in vain, and taxpayers' money wasted. The Montreal Gazette reports that the average by-election costs $982,000. Read about other election waste stories on the National Citizen's Coalition's OUCH page.
