I’m glad to see that there are some citizens who are taking a stand against the negative campaigning in this federal election.
Bush campaign architect Karl Rove to address political elites in Toronto and Calgary – Group of citizens comes together to condemn the importation of Bush-style campaign tactics
CALGARY, Sept. 22 /CNW/ – A group of concerned Canadian citizens are coming together to speak out against Karl Rove‘s address this week in Calgary and Toronto. Partisan think tank, the Fraser Institute, is charging $5000-$7000 per table for Canadian elites to dine with and learn from the architect of George W. Bush‘s two controversial presidential campaigns. The Fraser Institute has long held connections to political campaigns in Canada. Tom Flanagan, former Harper campaign manager and author of Harper’s Team: Behind the Scenes in the Conservative Rise to Power, is also a Senior Fellow at the Fraser Institute.
“We are concerned that the Conservative campaign is importing Republican campaign tactics and Bush-style governance,” Andy McIntyre, an organizer of the citizens’ group said. “Personal smears, voter fraud, bribery, blackmail and the politicization of Canada’s justice system have no place in Canadian politics or our elections.”
Mr. Rove will be speaking to the Fraser Institute at the Artists of the World Gallery, (514 – 11 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB) on September 24, 2008. The group of citizens will be meeting in Calgary at:
Memorial Park, West Side – 11th Avenue and 4th Street SW, Calgary, AB
6:00 PM – September 24, 2008
