Thanks for posting that! You can imagine what response I get with a CPC MP - come to the town hall meeting to talk about the budget. Who gives a f*ck about the budget when I am asking about prorogation. {sorry! I am steamed!} Anyway, it's a great comfort to read that. YAY!!

I am troubled by something. Remember when (last election, 2008) the Conservatives had this marketing strategy? They divided up the Canadian electorate into groups, segments, whatever. It was profiling, so Jane was birkinstock (forget her!), church-going mrs was blue sweater material, so on. I can't find anything online about it right now. Where were these profiles pulled from I wonder? What lists? What data? Census? Constituents' letters? Do their friends inside run plates for them? I say that because of this:

RCMP Investigated for 'Limited' Action on Conservative Eavesdropping, re Prorogue '08

I guess it's all available to buy somewhere as market research. What I am troubled by is people or constituents used as unwitting focus groups, say community events etc. It seemed very cynical to me, like the product was a vote. As a profile, do a lot of police and RCMP tend to be Conservative? Check this, for instance. Is it common practice in campaigns I wonder for all parties.

Stop The Overthrow Of The Canadian Government

Seems like an NSA trick lol - bait and switch, black hat seo

I don't remember a time when the US took interest in Canada or, hey, vice versa. This Conservative movement seems to have a lot of solidarity amongst x-border Christian evangelical folks, that's for sure. In my estimate, sites like the first one are the work of paid professionals (internet marketing, bad practices), e.g. bait and switch like that. It's not volunteer looking at all. It's also expensive to procure. Anyway, I don't like it. Telling my MP doesn't seem like a great idea either.

Just lamenting, I guess
