The staggering truth about the per vote subsidy and who pays the $9.4 million to pring MP propaganda is here.
Scott Hennig, a spokesperson for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, which is opposed to all forms of federal government financial support for political parties, called the Ten Percenter program "bizarre," and decried what he called the perpetual election campaign being waged on the taxpayer's dime.
"I think it's bizarre that a B.C. MP would be sending [a flyer] to someone in P.E.I. ... We're in a perpetual campaign and regardless of whether we're in a campaign or not taxpayers' money shouldn't be spent buying election ads. I think most people pay their taxes with the hope that they're going to get services for them, not attack ads, or brochures, or streets littered with signs and campaign buses all over the place, that's not what taxpayers pay their money for."
