Interested in facts

As a citizen and Conservative supporter I am as interested in the facts of the matter as anyone.

As a citizen and Conservative supporter I am as interested in the facts of the matter as anyone. But I await the evidence first, about Guelph, and then about the possibility of a systemic operation of my party. I am aware, however, of one systemic operation in connection with this investigation and that is the inflation of so-called “complaints” which Elections Canada soberly describes as “contacts.”

What you didn’t hear about from our ever vigilant media is just where those ‘contacts’ may have came from.

Most of the “complaints” have been generated by web sites that provide a prepared e-mail message to all the party leaders and your MP demanding a full public inquiry and real consequences for election fraud as well as to Elections Canada. These easily sent messages result in an easily magnified count of “complaints.”

Elections Canada, in self-defense and to stop group spamming which distorts the issue, has placed on its web site an e-mail for persons wishing to complain factually. Indeed, interference with the election process is a serious matter and requires serious attention to the facts. Political conjecture, easily inflamed, has no place in the process of deciding what happened.
