In an earlier post on campaign financing I made the mistake of using the Liberals of the 1990s as an example of how public finacing never really overcame the pull of wealthy donors. This occurred before many of the important elements of early 2000s campaign finance reforms were enacted, like heavy restrictions on corporate and union donations. A better example would be how, despite needing populist left support, the Dion Liberals campaigned for "Deep Corporate Tax Cuts".

My bad.
