Harper axing party subsidies

2011-06-20

Politics studies professor emeritus Ned Franks is available to talk about the Conservatives’ decision to phase out vote-based funding in the June 6 budget.

“From Harper’s standpoint, this move will hurt the other parties more than it will hurt the Conservatives,” says Dr. Franks. “A lot of politics is self-advantage masquerading as principle—axing party subsidies is just another step in that direction.”
