Political subsidies

Prime Minister Stephen Harper will soon eliminate the public "per vote" subsidy for politicians.

It's a good idea, but I just hope he's doing the right thing for the right reasons.

To see what I mean, check out this Ottawa Citizen column I wrote which appears in today's paper.

Also, the Ottawa Hill Times recently interviewed me on the very same topic.

Mr. Nicholls, I agree with you completely. Principled conservatism should be about advocating that conservative philosophy and approach to governance is the correct way to go. If this Tory party is all about killing the Liberals, then it really doesn't have much of a overall vision. Unfortunately, many bloggers on this community are all about trashing the Liberals and nothing else.
