A group calling itself Canada Strong and Proud is robocalling Canadians, with a two-question survey about federal party preference and support for oil and gas pipelines.
A 292-word “About Us” page appears on its website. Spoiler alert: it does not actually offer information about the shadowy organization. No names, titles, affiliations or office addresses. No privacy statement — even though Canada Strong and Proud wants to know who you are and how to reach you for its database. Makes you wonder, is it really Canadian-run?
It is part of the race to campaign anonymously through June 30, after which campaign-period disclosure rules kick-in on the way to the Oct. 21 federal election. You can blame Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada for letting this happen.
In this era of the permanent campaign, why not order full transparency for all political campaigns, at all times?
