One former RMG employee, a woman aged 24, said she thought at the time that the incorrect polling station addresses coming up on her screen were simply a “computer glitch,” so she started advising people they should check with Elections Canada to be sure.This is the part that doesn't make any sense: "She remembered the polling station script specifically instructed the callers to identify themselves as calling “on behalf of” the Conservative Party". If the Conservative Party of Canada was involved in a complicated scheme to fraudulently suppress the vote in an attempt to influence the outcome of the election, knowing full well that such a move was illegal and likely to blow up into a full blown scandal if discovered, why would Conservative agents instruct the callers to "identify themselves as calling on behalf of the Conservative Party?" If Harper is the evil genius that everyone says he is, why would he deliberately leave a trail leading directly back to the party?
“We’re not going to give them the wrong information on purpose,” she said.
She remembered the polling station script specifically instructed the callers to identify themselves as calling “on behalf of” the Conservative Party, “but not every call centre agent said it.”
Calls were auto-dialled by computer. Once an individual got on the line, the live agents started to read from prepared scripts. Depending on the answers, they moved on to another part of the script.
As each call ended, the computer auto-dialled the next number. The calls went to ridings across Canada; two employees said most calls went to Ontario ridings.
Doesn't it make more sense that someone hostile to the CPC and intent on causing mischief in the election which could be later linked to the Conservatives would instruct the call centre to identify themselves as acting on behalf of the CPC?
Something smells about this whole story.
