Illegal campaigning in Ottawa Centre...what would Ed Broadbent say?
I always respected Ed Broadbent, but he would never stoop to this.
Just got a voice mail from someone calling herself "Nora" campaigning on behalf of Paul Dewar, our NDP candidate here in Ottawa Centre. I only note this because she called using her government phone number during government hours on government time. A quick government directory reverse lookup produces the following information:Calls should not be made from government offices.
Nora J Balogh, Manager, Information Integration Services, Social Development Canada
She praised Mr. Dewar (any relation to Marion?) and told me that Ed Broadbent himself endorses the man and wanted me to be aware of that. Now I have a great deal of respect for Ed Broadbent. Indeed, until recently, I lived across the street from Ed and saw him frequently. I disagree with most of what his party stands for, but Ed himself is a terrific and highly respected Parliamentarian. I doubt he would endorse such tactics
