What the hell is a ROBO CALL?!

(from LeadNow.ca)
Elections Canada has just traced illegal phone calls made during the 2011 federal election to a company that worked for the Conservative Party across the country. The “robocalls” appeared to be designed to stop non-Conservative voters from casting ballots in key ridings by falsely telling voters that the location of their polling stations had changed, causing them to go to the wrong location on election day. This news casts doubt on the legitimacy of their majority Government. The Conservatives only narrowly won their majority by 6,201 votes in 14 ridings. (UPDATE: Now over 40 ridings!!!!!)

Now check out the wording of the article in the Ottawa Citizen linked below. Instead of it saying “At least 34 ridings affected by robocalls”, it says “At least 34 ridings affected by robocalls: opposition”. This tells me (the reader) that there wasn’t actually 34 ridings affected. What it tells me instead, is that the opposition to Stephen Harper’s Government, is only claiming there was. This is so unfairly misleading that it makes me never want to trust any headline from that newspaper.

You’ll also notice the examples of Harper’s Government Goons standing up and saying how much “Whoever did this, (not us) did something wrong (wasn’t me), and they (NOT US) are totally gonna pay for  it (we’ll probably say our campaign guy did it. We can do without him until next term.)”

here’s the articizzle:


If you’re not right pissed about this, you are severely distracted from reality.

So what’s gonna happen now? Hell if I know. There’s a petition here that will send a letter to a bunch of people demaning a full “independent” investigtion be done by…..the RCMP.  Great. We’ll see where that goes.
