Did Elections Canada Just Tell 31,000 Canadians To Hold Their Horses?


From an (apparent) press release from E-Canada:

Statement sent to media this morning from Elections Canada:

o The Office of the Commissioner of Canada Elections confirms that it is investigating complaints received regarding robocalls placed at the 41st general election in 2011.

o Elections Canada has received a high volume of complaints in recent days as a result of MPs and political parties calling on the public to send information to the agency. More than 31,000 contacts have been initiated with Elections Canada by Canadians. Elections Canada is reviewing these and will take action as appropriate.....

{snippety doodle-dandy, blah, blah, blah....}

o Elections Canada will provide a report to Parliament in due course in regards to this matter.


And when, exactly, was the last time 31,000 Canadians officially complained to an official arm of government about anything official, ever?

I say 'apparent' here, because McSushiBoy, the OCitizen's Glen McGregor, put this up on his pro-blog this morning....It was NOT on the Elections Canada Press Release page as of 7:30am Pacific....
