This one in from the Globe on-line:
"As a vice-president at Environics Analytics, he runs one of the Canadian companies that tell people trying to sell you stuff how to track you down and get your attention. He advises banks where to locate new branches, he knows which grocery stores should stock thin-crust pizza and he can design direct mail to your presumed tastes. A few years back, with great success, he told the Liberal Party what to say (and not to say) to woo swing voters in certain neighbourhoods."
Is it just me or is there something fundamentally wrong about a policital party operating on polls instead of something silly like principles and policies? I know that it's been this way for a while, but seeing it cast this way as if it were a positive thing is just a bit too over the top for me.
