Democracy costs money. In the context of the decisions being made, $1 million is a comparatively small amount.

For example, let's look at just one decision that Chow promised to make differently than Tory: Spending an extra $480 million on the Gardiner Boondoggle.

See how it works? That investment of $1 million just paid itself back 480-fold. And that's only one decision over a 4-year term.

This particular argument has a long and sleazy history in Canadian politics. For example, in 1945, when he presented to Parliament his spending estimates for the Second World War, C.D. Howe was deliberately misquoted by John Diefenbaker as saying, "What's a million."
