from "jason" -> "you're getting ahead of yourself now trying to pin the economic statement as the reason for this coup. The update doesn't come until January." Thats just the point Harper is sitting on his hands while the other national leaders are taking quick action to stimulate there economies and not have a repeat of the Depression.

"I happen to agree with the concept of no public funding for private, multi-billion dollar political corporations." So you want to go back to the good old days of the parties all beholden to their big business (Con, Lib) and union (NDP) backers? Democracy's not supposed to be about who raises the most money, if so the parties will just bend their policies to appeal to the richest doners.

"it might open up politics to regular people, not just greedy elites." Public financing does just that, it means parties get money based on how many votes they got from REGULAR PEOPLE. Once again you seem to be complaining about the solution to the problems you've pointed out???
