Controversial 'robocall' firm behind mass text messages across Canada - 2019-07-05
A controversial Ontario marketing firm is behind a wave of mysterious texts soliciting views from British Columbians and Ontarians on environmental policies in the lead-up to October's federal election.
B.C. residents began receiving texts last week from someone introducing themselves as "Sue from BC Strong," asking if the recipient agrees that "we must build pipelines to export Canadian oil."
The message is similar to texts sent to Ontarians last month from another "Sue" affiliated with "Ontario Strong," asking their thoughts on the carbon tax.
