The NPD government is ending the so-called “Wild West” days of campaign financing in British Columbia.
However, taxpayers will have to pay through the nose to make it happen.
On the face of it, the NDP deserves kudos for curtailing corporate, union and foreign financing of election campaigns, something the Liberals only came onside with when they were on the verge of defeat.
