In response to the continuing furore(tte) surrounding the anti-Bob Rae Youtube clip released by the National Citizens Coalition during last weekend's Liberal convention -- which was first publicized on twitter byNCC director Stephen Taylor, who was attending the event in question asaccredited media, and who did not immediately disclose his connection to the spot -- NCC president Peter Coleman has gone on the recordto vehemently, if not quite categorically, deny that there is any link between the organization he leads and the Conservative Party of Canada.

"We do not work for the Conservative Party, never have, never will," Coleman assured Hill Timesreporter Tim Naumetz, who nonetheless noted that he "deflected and did not directly answer" a subsequent question on whether the NCC "still maintains contact with [Stephen] Harper or officials in the ConservativeParty."

The NCC may not work for the Conservative Party, but itdoes share a contractor with several candidates who ran under the party's banner during the last election: Rally for Canada Inc, which, according to its somewhat minimalist website, is a provider of "full service digital solutions".
