The real reason Rob Ander's pamphlet was wrong

I wrote in my last post that I thought the reaction to Mr. Ander's pamphlet was an over reaction. At the same time the pamphlet annoyed me for a completely different reason.

This was the last paragraph of the Calgary Herald article:

"The one I sent you was the one we had extras of," he explained in an e-mail. "There are 10 different versions sent out to 10 different parts of the riding. Each one has to be 50 per cent different than the next to satisfy House of Commons publishing guidelines."

The rules he refers to are the rules governing Ten Percenters (I know because I use to make them). These pamphlets were published and distributed using tax dollars. As much as I may agree with Mr. Ander's goal, it irks me that he is using taxpayer's money to advance that goal.

Good for you Rob to tell the truth on this.
