Conservative Staffer Resigns

We weren’t sure what all the fuss was initially so we held off on posting on the breaking scandal in Ottawa. After all, at prairie dog we get robocalls all the time. Usually, they’re just a perky woman named Jessica telling us that we’ve won a free Caribbean cruise [insert sound of luxury cruise ship horn here].

The robocalls that were made prior to last May’s federal election didn’t offer free cruises. Instead, they directed voters in a number of swing ridings across the country to the wrong or non-existent polling station.  The calls have been traced to an Edmonton call centre with Conservative connections called RackNine. Elections Canada has begun an investigation, and a young Conservative staffer named Michael Sona currently in the employ of Guelph MP Eve Adams has resigned. You can read the CBC report here. And expect this to be issue #1 on Parliament Hill come Monday.
