My brain would certainly have understood that using that vernacular would point to there being multiple people involved which is much more believable than your original claim that it was some over-eager and misguided underling acting all alone. Hope none of those words are to big for your little brain.
So far nothing I have read has proved there was more than one person or that it was done with any direction from party officials.
Nobody has put out any proof of anything at this point really. All we know as actual facts are that some misleading calls were made on election day through a company that was used by the CPC. Everything else is speculation and educated guessing.
How about you explain just how even a group of con supporters got the lists of Liberal members and now posibly NDP members as well.in 18 or so ridings?
I could probably get this info in less than a day with a few entries into the right search engine.
These lists are not normally handed out even to party volunteers on a mass basis.
Exactly why a lot of people are speculating their was involment from some high ranking party officials.
Do you believe that the conservatives planted moles in 18 Liberal riding offices just to get copies of their members lists?
Possible but if they were as smart as you like to think they would just have one good mole at Elections Canada where they have all the info.

I don't think there is a party out there that hasn't 'misdirected' funds at some point but this would be the first time for actual mass scale election fraud if that is how it pans out. To me that is far bigger than some missing money.

There are some very devious minds at play in all parties so it is not impossible that the libs orchestrated this to try and force another election just after they ordain their new leader.
Or I could be completely off base.
Wow, you really are a hardcore CPC supporter aren't you. The Libs did it to themselves to blame the Cons later and get a whole new election??? As much as I like the idea of a new national election the only recourse I can actually find in the election act is a by-election in those ridings affected and any candidate found to be involved banned from running for 5 years. Hardly the reason for the great conspiracy you suggest....did you run out of tinfoil for your hats when you came up with this idea???
Just exactly how much fraud and deception in the actual election process do you need for it to become the biggest scandal in Canadian politics.
THAT I can easily believe. Ironically I advised my young grand daughters this evening that ANY THING they put on Facebook can end up anywhere.
Just ask Harpo and his pals! An innocent photo with a public figure can wind up at CPC headquarters where they will issue the orders to physically remove you from an 'open' town hall meeting with Harpo. Even if you happen to be a naive young girl.
