Conservatives not ready to own up fraudulent ‘robocalls’

It seems like Conservatives have changed their mind about taking the blame of fraudulent ‘robocalls’ made to several voters during 2011 federal elections. On Thursday, the party decided to hold a young campaign worker responsible.

The Conservatives’ campaign manager, Jenni Byrne, said: "The party was not involved with these calls and if anyone on a local campaign was involved they will not play a role in a future campaign."

According to Elections Canada, the deceitful phone calls were traced back to an Edmonton company, which allegedly has connections with the Conservative Party. The calls were made to decisively mislead voters.

The callers were faking to be the employees of Elections Canada, informing them their polling stations had been relocated. The fake calls caused a messy scene at one polling station, and perhaps led a number of voters to quit voting and return home.

The Prime Minister said that those found responsible for such a shameful act would have to face the full consequence of the law.

Harper says: "In this case, our party has no knowledge of these calls. It’s not part of our campaign."

New Democrat MP Pat Martin called the entire act a "disgusting" intrusion with the electoral procedure. He said it was wide of the mark to propose that the fake calls on Election Day were backed by "a couple of hillbillies in Edmonton" acting alone.

"It was not some rogue punk out in the boondocks. It’s just not plausible," said Martin.

  1. Stephen Harper, Rob Nicholson, John Baird, Jim Flaherty and Vic Toews, along with the rest of the Conservatives are liars, cheats and thieves! Bill-C10 threatens to throw many in jail longer and needlessly! Bill C-11 would strip Canadians of even more rights to what we already own and censor our flow of information! Bill-30 will strip us of our privacy! Now lets not forget the G20 fiasco, Vic Toews immortal centimes about Canadians being pedophiles, the planned pension cuts, or their election fraud, and now they’re delaying the budget, as if we don’t know their motivations! The fascist Conservatives and would turn our country into an Orwellian nightmare! They aren’t even a legitimate government! Canada needs to rise up march on Ottawa and occupy the parliament! We need to take back our country, remove the Conservatives from power! Those that would appose the will of the people need to be taught a lesson, followed by some good old fashion tarring and feathering, finish with banishing traitors from Canada! Finally Canadians need some laws that allow us to force referendums on the government and punish corrupt politicians who think they can screw with their people, their employers, you and me! Shout from every mountain top, “WE WILL NOT STAND FOR CORRUPTION WITHIN OUR GOVERNMENT! WE’RE COMING FOR YOU HARPER REGIEM! EXPECT US!”

    People shouldn’t fear the government, the government should fear the people!
