When Kyle Hamilton got a phone call asking him to support a UCP candidate in the upcoming provincial election, he asked about the candidate's platform. When the caller didn't answer his question, he got suspicious.

Hamilton: Can you do me a favour and say, 'Carrot?'

Caller: Uh, no problem ... I just wanted to take a second and ask if you'd vote for Marjorie Newman and the UCP in the upcoming election.
