Pierre Lemieux over at Liberty in Canada has a different take from mine concerning the Elections Canada -- Stephen Harper brawl.
Unlike me, Lemieux has little sympathy for the Tories: "Let the politicians taste their own medicine by falling prey to the liberticidal powers they have vested in the state!", he writes.
And he also correctly notes, the Tories have done very little when it comes to undoing the very type of bad laws which have ensnared them.
"The Conservatives," he argues "have not only forgotten about repealing the gag law, they have, in fact, reinforced the state’s control of electoral financing by reducing the voluntary contributions individuals are permitted to make to political parties."
Perhaps this little run in will help convince the Tories that our election laws need reform.
