They are featured above a brave pledge by CPC candidate Diane Watts to "fight Jihadist Terrorists at home and abroad."
You go, girl.
In response to catching flack for "the worst example of politics of fear that I’ve ever seen" as one of her constituents put it, Watts issued a statement :
"ISIS has clearly declared Canada as a target for terrorism. We have seen such acts on Canadian soil with the death of our Canadian soldier in Ottawa — in Quebec and a foiled attempt at the B.C. Legislature."
Someone in her office purportedly explained the flyers were not really Diane's fault :
"That came directly from Ottawa."Which interestingly enough is the same response local CPC campaigns gave to Elections Canada the day before the last federal election about CPC live and robo-calls purveying incorrect poll location information. Elections Canada :
"When contacted by returning officers, local Conservative Party campaigns advised that the calls were from the national campaign of the party, and that the campaigns could not stop them.”
Meanwhile two ridings away, households in West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country received CPC incumbent John Weston's 6"x10" glossy flyer. Half of it features Trudeau and the other half the actress from the Cons' "Just Not Ready" video.
Notice what's missing in these flyers?
They might come from "directly from Ottawa" but there's nary a mention in them anywhere of Steve.
