Politicians expenditures should be available

Elizabeth May, Green Party leader, stated unequivocally she posted all of her expenditures online

I had the opportunity to see an interview on TV with representatives of the Green Party, Conservative Party and the NDP.

Elizabeth May, Green Party leader, stated unequivocally she posted all of her expenditures online from her taxi chits on up.  I am left wondering why it seems to be such a stretch for other parties, both federal and provincial, who conveniently hide behind “process,” to announce and follow through on their willingness to do the same.

These are taxpayer dollars that are spent; read you and me.  I think if their party has a problem with that, it should not prevent individual MPs and MLAs from doing their own postings. Maybe the rest of those who think their expenditures should be secretive from those who are paying their salaries will be shamed into doing the same.
