Here's a way to make Conservative party members feel as important as cabinet ministers: a gag order!
Here's a copy of an email sent out today to the so-called Conservative "base." (All identifiers to the source of the email have been erased to protect the gag-resistant source.)
Subject: Fw: CBC Requests for Interviews
Gord Elliott <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I and other
members of the party have received emails from the CBC fishing for people to
interview about Mike Duffy’s allegations. I have ignored all of the requests and
strongly urge you to do the same. Should you happen to talk to one of their
reporters, please refer the reporter to our party’s Director of Communications,
Cory Hann, at 613-755-2000.
