A Timely Editorial Cartoon from 1875

L'Opinion publique, August 1875

The biggest thing that Elections Canada can wield in a case where a politician overspends is a thousand dollar fine. Now, theoretically you can also send somebody to jail for up to three months, but everyone knows that's not going to happen.

  1. Love it! (The cartoon, not the corruption.)I wish Elections Canada had motive, means and opportunity, as it were.
