Not so fast Giorno

Mystified, he is.
“It looks like there is something worth investigating there and that's a concern to me, to you, to all Canadians because the right to vote is sacrosanct and anyone who wants to mess around with that right, interfere with that right is doing not just the Conservative Party, not just the people of Guelph, but all Canadians a disservice,” Mr. Giorno said on CTV’s Question Period.
Not just Guelph. This is nationwide and denying it doesn't make it go away. Then ...
“When you're running a good campaign, you don't have time for any shenanigans outside those three core activities of identification, persuasion and mobilization [of voters],” he said. 
Who said it was a core activity? A browse through of the the Conservative Constituent Information Management System shows that it can easily be used for purposes other than those described by Giorno.

So was there a "Campaign Ethics" unit? Given the Harperites propensity for a wide range of nasty political behaviour both off-writ and during a campaign, it doesn't look like it, does it?

And The Gazetteer has a question we've been asking in Saanich-Gulf Islands since 2008.
