Envelopes stuffed with pamphlets?

How deep does the Liberal rot actually go?

...the Conservatives have to know their shabby treatment of her, at least, will come back to bite them, one brown envelope at a time.

Mmmm.... Could there be a connection?

Now what makes me think that Anon is not a Conservative supporter?

The inability to properly capitalize words does it for me.

how does this happen without someone in the know and in the lemming party to suggest that slipping a flyer into the chqs. is a good idea?


I smell another investigation coming up......what the heck's going on?

.what the heck's going on?

So far it's only one flyer in one envelope, but it's very strange. The comments at Janke's site may shed a bit more light.

Wow, anon 1 is a little hostile. I liked the use of facts, and intelligent discourse. LOL

This is interesting, hopefully more incidences will show up. Could Iggy be behind this?

I usually delete stuff like that, but then I thought, hey. Maybe this is representative of Liberal intelligence and perhaps I should let it stand.

WTF!!!

WTF, exactly. Are you people really that gullible? "One person says"? You're fantasists. If this was going on you would have hundreds of these reports, all from your own side. Think about it, please? Use just a bit of common sense. Someone is going to the effort to secrete one pamphlet into one envelope? Gee that sure sounds like a Commie threat to me. Children, you must do better than this.

Conservatives Deceiving Families with Canada Child Tax Benefit Mail Out

August 2, 2007
BRAMPTON - Conservative government propaganda being distributed to Canada's families is covering up broken child care promises and cutbacks of income support for families of young children, said Liberal Social Development Critic Ruby Dhalla.

"An insert, recently mailed out by the federal government to families who receive the Canada Child Tax Benefit, is Conservative double-speak at its most mean-spirited and hypocritical," said Ms. Dhalla.

The document informs Canadians that the Canada Child Tax Benefit families receive will no longer be impacted by the child care expenses that families claim because the supplement for children under age 7 "will no longer be a component of the CCTB calculation."

"The only reason this is true is because the Conservative government has completely eliminated the Young Child Supplement. It is extremely dishonest to dress up a broken promise not to touch the Canada Child Tax Benefits and spending cuts to income support for families in need . This government's conduct is disgraceful," said Ms. Dhalla.

The Young Child Supplement of the Canada Child Tax Benefit provided up to $20.25 monthly to parents who did not claim child-care expenses for their preschool-age children.

"The cancellation of the Young Child Supplement was an ideological decision by this Conservative government to take away benefits from low-and middle-income families in order to pay for the Universal Child Care Benefit.

"The Conservative government has received failing grades from families and child care experts for its failure to deliver new child care spaces and for its paltry, taxable child care benefit. Parents do not need propaganda, cover-ups and lies. They need viable, affordable child care solutions," said Ms. Dhalla.

So, let me see... the government sends informational literature reinforcing the benefit, and Dhalla the windbag has a problem. But using CUPE moles to do Liberal party mailings and burying the cost in government postage? noo problem if you're a Liberal. Does the LPC corruption never end?

Unless it is Ti-Guy level of profanity, I'd say let these inane comments stand. Exposing these cockroaches to light is the only way to make them skidder back to their little holes. anon #729

Hey Jo

Looks like your getting booed big time by anon...

In sports, it's usually the best player on the opposing team that gets booed, simply because the fans know how good that player is and how they hurt their teams chances.

Nananana..nananana..hey hey hey......

Anon #729 (and thanks for numbering yourself...) - The trolls I worry the most about are the undercover ones from the HRC.

wow, if this is true, is this not slightly illegal?

basically it would be that the LPC (or friends) are using taxpayer dollars to send out directed mail.

Luckily, I have a tonne of friends who have kids under 6 years old and I've just sent out a massive email asking them if any received this pamphlet.

If this turns out to be true, my guess is that the LPC will spin this by saying that not many people get their CCBT via mail anymore (I did) and so it would not effect many people...or something like that...

Great! Please let me know what you hear back. Thanks.

tori said...

hey jo, OT, but what the heck is wrong with RT?

I made the mistake of taking a gander at his new blog and man, that guy has some anger issues or something. Probably not wise, seeing as he is a heart attack survivor...

I don't go there any more, but I've heard a rumour that he has become a sock puppet for a certain cynical Canadian blog.
