Politicians are in politics for who, themselves, they will use any loophole they can find to help themselves to taxpayers money.Is it any wonder that voter turnout is so low, no one has any faith in politics. It doesn't mater who you elect. The NDP will promise anything because they have little chance of forming the govt. The Lierals have been there as have the PC and its the same. Until charges are laid for theft or fraudulent use of taxpayers money and jail time given nothing will change.

In light of the latest revelations of documentable examples of political corruptionpresently rocking the Senate, it appears that there is need for reform in the Chamber of sober second thought. However, it is worthy of note that while voter apathy is at an all time high at the Federal level, at least, and while voters continually whine and complain about alleged political patronage appointments, which are a fact of political life in both the Federal and the Provincial political arenas; it appears that there is nothing like the smell of scandal; emanating from either the Provincial or the Federal Political arena, to tweak the iinterest of the voter, and attract them like "flies to a honeybucket"

You're right P.J., "after all, it's politics". Don't lose sight of the fact politics is made up mostly of greedy polititians and therein lies the reason why it will never change.
