Campaign Diary, Day 3: Every vote counts!

No, seriously. I'm not bullshitting you. As John Ibbitson explains in his Globe and Mail column today, thanks to Bill C-24 -- the campaign finance reform bill -- every vote is now equal to $1.75 in funding for the party you vote for. No longer are you throwing your vote away on the Marxist-Leninist party; now you're giving them enough money for a cup of coffee or a good icepick sharpening.

It's like proportional representation. But less democratic.
