I have to say – watching this Robocall scandal and the Conservatives response to it is like watching a case study from the PR handbook – that would be a case study in what *not* to do in the event of a crisis. Rather than staying on message about an Elections Canada investigation and a public inquiry, Harper and co have consistently swayed into territory that is not only insulting to the other political parties, but to any Canadian who cares about the democratic tradition. Today’s tactic? Calling everyone else “sore losers”. *Sigh* Oh, Canada – whatever is becoming of you?
