While the United States presidential election is raging on, several Canadian politicians are complaining of what they call “American-style dirty tricks” up north — specifically, the increasing use of robocalls. The problem is that many of the politicians complaining about this behavior are themselves working closely with American left-wing groups closely affiliated with the Obama campaign. Sun News Network’s Brian Lilley released the following video:
Lilley’s accompanying blog post lays out the facts of the case:
What has happened is that the left has imported what they claim they hate.[...]
This group has an entire campaign to push people to contact Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the other party leaders, RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson and William Corbett, the Commissioner of Canada Elections – he’s the lead investigator for any wrong doing in the election.[...]
These are high level Americans with deep ties to the left wing of the Democratic Party are now trying to overturn Canadian democracy.
Among the people Lilley cites as being involved are Ben Brandzel, a former advocacy director for Moveon.org, as well as Ross McGregor, Director of the Tides Canada Foundation. And yes, that is the Canadian branch of George Soros’ Tides Foundation.
