Same PR firm backing Jim Prentice was behind fake robocall protests

Alberta PC leadership candidate Jim Prentice definitely does not want the dirty secret of how the PR firm Navigator Ltd deeply tied to him (see here) was working secretly to undermine the Conservative Party of Canada.

The fact Prentice wouldn’t want well-known is that Navigator’s Senior Partner Robin Sears was directing LeadNow’s online petition drive that ginned-up 40,000 robocall complaints (see here) and which Elections Canada pointed out in its investigation:

But while the agency got more than 40,000 messages about the misleading and nuisance calls, the investigation found 96 per cent of them came through Lead Now, an organization that asked concerned voters to sign a petition.

In all, 39,350 of the more than 40,000 “communications” with Elections Canada were from people expressing “their profound dissatisfaction with inappropriate calls​,” the report said, and not from people who received the calls. (see here)

Federal Conservative supporters in Alberta need to fully know the players who are in Prentice’s backroom and demand they come clean about their involvement in trying to take down Stephen Harper in such a dishonest way.

    The three stooges of the Alberta PC party jumping on the selfie bandwagon.

    Is the Alberta PC Party at a point of no return on a path of self destruction or what? I thought Prentice was a good Conservative so questions might be asked after these revelations, people are judged by their associations. Is there any opportunism here?

  3. Joe Says:

    The Alberta PCs dropped the C two leaders ago and are determined to get another P elected leader. Prentice has the P street cred and I always thought he didn’t really fit in with PM Harper’s Conservatives.

    I am hoping that Ric McIvor (Dr. No). maintains his straight and narrow and the press stop fawning over Prentice we will see a good race for Premier not a coronation.

    […] Sears knows very well what kind of dirty tricks are played in Ottawa as he was behind one of the dirtiest as he organized the phony anti-robocall petition group LeadNow (see here) which Elections Canada condemned in their investigation (see here). […]
