Just What The Heckfire Is....


..."Brief Incidental Volunteerism" Anyway?


It would appear that it is what American political operatives call knocking on doors and working the phones for Conservative Party of Canada candidates.

And why might they call it that?

Well, it could, perhaps, have something to do with the following, taken verbatim, from the Canada Elections Act:

...No person who does not reside in Canada shall, during an election period, in any way induce electors to vote or refrain from voting or vote or refrain from voting for a particular candidate unless the person is(a) a Canadian citizen; or(b) a permanent resident within the meaning of subsection 2(1) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act....

Alison, who has been on this since the beginning, has the whole story, and the story of the Stonewall that is being built around it, which is getting higher by the day.
