A marketing research company that placed calls into the riding of Liberal MP Irwin Cotler on behalf of the Conservatives to suggest that Mr. Cotler was resigning has been reprimanded by the body that oversees the standards of its industry.

The Marketing Research and Intelligence Association (MRIA) released a decision Wednesday saying Campaign Research had acted in a way that diminished confidence in marketing research, had brought discredit on the profession, and had not received permission to discuss its membership in the MRIA with reporters.

As a result, the complaints panel of the MRIA imposed a sanction of "censure" on research company but opted against the harsher penalties of suspension or expulsion from association.
