Tories and Liberals gang up on NDP over mailings—why now?
What’s to be gained by a normally secretive all-party club of MPs attacking some of its members?

In another section of this site, (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/vancouver-mp-claims-liberal-party-promoting-marijuana-to-kids-1.2683052) you print an article about the Tories slamming the Federal Liberals in a mail-out, with many untruths..but I’m guessing that is okay, as long as there is no overt political message that takes a pro stance on the Tories?
The truth is these mail-outs have always been about politicizing the message, from all parties, and the Liberals must feel really proud of themselves for jumping on the bash the NDP wagon along with their brothers in arms the HarperCons. But why let the truth get in the way of another Con media plant?
Ahhhh…the truth is, these ‘stories’ are starting to drift into the territory of analysis, and if the CBC doesn’t watch themselves, there will be still more cuts to their already anorexic budget. If the ‘journalists’ that the MotherCorp still keeps on the payroll are allowed to be even a faint shadow of the political weathervanes they were once capable of being, who knows what sort of trouble they might engender?
