Bush campaign architect Karl Rove to address political elites in Toronto and Calgary

    Group of citizens comes together to condemn the importation of Bush-style
    campaign tactics

    CALGARY, Sept. 22 /CNW/ - A group of concerned Canadian citizens are
coming together to speak out against Karl Rove's address this week in Calgary
and Toronto. Partisan think tank, the Fraser Institute, is charging
$5000-$7000 per table for Canadian elites to dine with and learn from the
architect of George W. Bush's two controversial presidential campaigns. The
Fraser Institute has long held connections to political campaigns in Canada.
Tom Flanagan, former Harper campaign manager and author of Harper's Team:
Behind the Scenes in the Conservative Rise to Power, is also a Senior Fellow
at the Fraser Institute.
    "We are concerned that the Conservative campaign is importing Republican
campaign tactics and Bush-style governance," Andy McIntyre, an organizer of
the citizens' group said. "Personal smears, voter fraud, bribery, blackmail
and the politicization of Canada's justice system have no place in Canadian
politics or our elections."
    Mr. Rove will be speaking to the Fraser Institute at the Artists of the
World Gallery, (514 - 11 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB) on September 24, 2008. The
group of citizens will be meeting in Calgary at:

    Memorial Park, West Side
    11th Avenue and 4th Street SW
    Calgary, AB

    6:00 PM
    September 24, 2008
