City Of Regina Using American Communications Company (also used by Conservative MPs) To Sway Water Referendum Vote ...

It looks as if the City of Regina has its own version of 'Watergate'!!

An American communications company is getting a piece of the city's referendum campaign budget for its involvement in Mayor Michael Fougere's telephone town halls.

Front Porch Strategies, based in Delaware, Ohio, was hired by the City of Regina's polling firm, Direct Marketing Services in Saskatoon, to help carry out three teleforums, said the city's communications manager Deb McEwen.

Front Porch Strategies' website says "our passion is helping Republican candidates, elected officials, and conservative causes win by connecting them with voters and constituents".

The firm was also used by a number of Conservative MPs during the 2011 federal election, according to news reports.
