Callers on behalf of the federal Conservative Party were instructed in the days before last year’s election to read scripts telling voters that Elections Canada had changed their voting locations, say telephone operators who worked for a Thunder Bay-based call centre.So, that puts the lie to the 23-year old New Jersey-born lone gunman theory. Grassy knolls everywhere.
These weren’t “robo-calls,” as automated pre-recorded voice messages as commonly known. They were live real-time calls made into ridings across Canada, the callers say.
You must read Impolitical.
Of course there were scripts. And the scripts would have been created, vetted, and field-tested by the the client and the firm. The calls would have been monitored and possibly recorded for quality control so the $12/hr callers wouldn't deviate from the scripts. Unless they've been deleting hard-drives and shredding paper, there are very likely records and examples of these scripts, contracts, etc sitting out there waiting to be leaked and search-warranted.
I'm convinced Campaign Research Inc. was involved in creating the strategy. http://campaignresearch.ca/?page_id=27
RackNine was hired to provide the platform for delivering the recorded calls.
They were the ones responsible for the recent misinformation campaign against Irwin Cotler.
