Sheer audacity

"We're in the business of getting Conservatives elected and ending Liberal careers. We're good at it."
Campaign Research is the polling firm 'hired' by the Conservatives that falsely told Montreal constituents that their MP, Liberal Irwin Cotler, may resign. 
Andrew Sheer is the Speaker of the House and Conservative MP who bought the services of Campaign Research during his election campaign. 
Andrew Sheer is the Speaker of the House who found no breach of privilege when Irwin Cotler formally complained to him about Campaign Research's lies. 

Andrew Sheer is not someone I know, but he wears the same Harpermacht* uniform of clean-cut well-fed fanatical youth in a suit. See Baird, Kenney, del Mastro, the lunatic McVety for the same look. Odds on Sheer isn't in the Speaker's chair by accident. Reprehensible indeed.
Dippers and Grits: Do you understand it now? THEIR firm will call your constituents and tell lies about you. Their Speaker will make impotent noises, or perhaps by that point just openly mock you. Their MPs will sneer and snicker as they ram through more legislation that cripples your capacity to wage election. They will break law and convention everywhere they can get away with it -and that's a rapidly expanding field.
In their minds they're at war with you, me and anyone else remotely objecting to their fanatical misanthropy. They're not going to stop until they have absolute and permanent power, which means using any measure they can to crush their opposition. Us, in other words. 
This is what fanatics do. 
But you don't have to let them.

*Godwin be damned, this exactly what they are.
