Perhaps this is a common practice. Seems out of line to me.
If I lived in Oshawa I would want to know a little more about my MP than the fact they have lawn signs available and links to Elections Canada on their website. Looks like the candidate in question, CPC MP Colin Carrie is in for a stiff challenge from Liberal candidate, James Morton and the NDP challenger, Chris Buckley, who is President of CAW Local 222. It will be interesting to see which way the vote splits there.
April 4 - the links to Elections Canada employment opportunities have now been removed from the pages where they formerly appeared on Mr. Carrie's site.
