An anti-Conservative robo-call has surfaced from the 2011 federal election campaign in Guelph – one the Liberals are now claiming responsibility for having funded.
Conservatives, however, are accusing the Liberals of deliberately obscuring the fact they were behind the calls.
The recorded message – circulated to the media by Conservatives Friday – attacked Guelph Tory candidate Marty Burke as anti-choice.
. . .
Liberal MP Frank Valeriote acknowledged the anti-Burke robo-call should have identified it was funded by his campaign.
You can listen to the call here.
Okey dokey then. So is the information correct? Yuppers, Marty Burke gets a bluebird on his Fetus Lobby Report Card.
Is it misleading? Nope.
Is it rude? Nope.
Is it an attempt at voter suppression? Nope.
Was it properly identified as coming from the Liberal campaign? Nope.
And that's all the Contempt Party's got.
Oh wait. Let's see what John (Senator-In-Waiting) Ivison has to say.
These calls appear to have been the catalyst for a number of Tweets from Andrew Prescott, deputy campaign manager for Mr. Burke, who complained about “anti #CPC voter suppression calls” aimed at his party, two days before election day.
They have no shame.
By the way, Andrew Prescott has lawyered up and has cancelled a meeting with Elections Canada.
