Can vot­ers be bought?

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

Af­ter be­ing ig­nored for years, vet­er­ans and par­ents of chil­dren are get­ting some elec­tion money for their votes. Vet­er­ans are smart enough to know that be­ing rec­og­nized ev­ery four years is not enough. With Prime Min­is­ter Stephen Harper’s fed­eral Re­form gov­ern­ment trail­ing in the polls look for more tax­payer-funded good­ies to come. Can Eg­mont vot­ers be bought? Very lit­tle, if any, black rum or moon­shine on the go.
