More pretty dots. More evidence

Go over to The Gazetteer and watch the video of the CBC report. Then go down and read the first comment from the very diligent North Van Grumps.

On the video a Lori Bruce is interviewed and stated that she had a call from the Conservative Party telling her that her voting place had moved. She googled the number, 902-800-1015, as can be seen during the interview.

Now go here where the number 902-800-1015, the one on Lori Bruce's screen, is the subject of some complaining. Scroll down to a comment left on 30 Apr 2011 by one LoriB.

Here is what she said then:
I just got a call from this number. They told me the location where I vote on Monday has changed.  I called Elections Canada and was told the location has not changed and I was not the first call they had today asking the same thing.
Lori Bruce is in Fredricton New Brunswick.

Now go to the comment just below by Astrid back on 1 May 2011.
Received the 6th or 7th call in two weeks from the Conservative Party. This last one, about an hour ago, she told me locations to vote had changed, Told her no, I know where it is, this is after I declared "oh, no, not again". Are these people just so desperate?
Worst call came form Randy Kamp's (MLA) office in Mission, the man actually demanded that I tell him who I am voting for. Made it perfectly clear that that was NONE of his business.
Am going to contact Elections Canada and register a complaint too.
Astrid appears to be in the riding of Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission, British Columbia where Randy Kamp, Conservative, is the MP.

Comments left on a site a few days before the last election, from ridings on either side of the country - not Guelph.

Must add:  Area code 902 covers Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Fredricton is in area code 506. Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission is in area code 604 and 778. The prefix 800 in area code 902 is in Halifax.
