Peter Van Pantload: Discussing the “Visit” (Updated)

Shorter version: But, but… ADSCAM!!!

Update: I had initially dismissed the contention that the additional Conservative spending may have affected the outcome of the election, but Steve at Far & Wide has some very interesting stuff on this:

“What I see here, with VERY few exceptions, the Conservatives topped off ridings that weren’t in play, in order to use that money where it could make a difference. The above supports the idea that this extra money was very important for Conservative fortunes, spent in targeted regions, it could very well have made a difference, as suggested by both the Liberals and NDP.”

Update2: So much for that “free speech” argument. What a load of bollocks.
