Liberal MP Frank Valeriote says it was an "oversight" that his party did not identify that it was behind an anti-Conservative robocall used during the last federal election Guelph, Ont.I bet they take a much quieter view of the goings on now that the Liberal party has been found to make robocalls to "strategically" vote against Conservatives.
The riding is already the focus of an Elections Canada probe into opposition accusations that the Tories used automated messages to direct voters to the wrong polling stations. The Conservatives deny the accusations.
Now the Liberals are left to explain the automated message, or robocall, that was critical of Conservative candidate Marty Burke.
Audio of the recording surfaced Friday night.
The recording does not state that it came from the Liberal Party or from Valeriote's campaign. The Elections Act requires parties or candidates to identify themselves in campaign ads.
CTV has found an activist to comment on this article, he is arranging the Lethbridge rally for tomorrow. So, it appears that CTV is more interested in gossip, as they state themselves:
than the facts. Look at his facebook page. He's an artist and an Occupy supporter! Guess he has lots of time to arrange protests in between writing startling bad poetry. Are the taxpayers paying for his poetry?
If Elections Canada does nothing about this "dirty" trick by the Liberals, they should be replaced with people who are unbiased. We are watching you Elections Canada, very, very closely. Do not expect another free ride like the in and out win. Your days of leaking documents to the Liberal CBC are over. You do NOT have any power over we the voters.
Someone needs to call an inquiry into Elections Canada, because something stinks to high heaven, and it appears to be emanating from the EC offices, or should that be orifices?
