Canada Strong and Proud registers as third party ahead of election - 2019-07-25
OTTAWA -- A third-party organization linked to a series of robocall and text campaigns in Canada is now officially registered as a third party for the upcoming federal election.
Canada Strong and Proud first came to public attention when it sent out robocalls in late June asking for information about recipients' voting intentions and support for pipelines.
Some complained about receiving the calls without having provided the group with their phone numbers.
Now, Canada Strong and Proud is one of 26 organizations -- so far -- that will be spending money on advertisements or other political activity in the coming months.
