I received an email this morning from a Conservative friend (not from my riding) who was in attendance. He told of reporters not being permitted to ask many questions. There were massive security checks and people were tossed out of the venue for their relations to the Liberal party. People were turned away for not having identification. He said that was it for him. He had been experiencing difficulty with the Harper approach in the last couple of years but the rally convinced him it was time to move on. He doesn’t know how, or if, he’ll vote in this campaign, but he can no longer support the PM.
