let them stay: war resisters story on global national news

We had some good coverage on Global tonight. To watch, click here, then choose "Global National Stories" and "Resisters Debate".

Take a moment to click on the Global National main page. There's a poll about deporting war resisters: please click. (Meaningless, I know, but it can't hurt.)

Careful on that wording. The correct answer is NO.

Update: see comments for a better idea.

More effective: don't click.

Instead, copy-paste the URL http://www.canada.com/globaltv/national/index.html into your browser and then vote, so it won't look like all these people are voting just because someone told them to.

Hilarious!

The wording of the poll question is typical of CanWest Media. You need to make sure you've read things right because of the hidden ambiguities.

That's another reason I have for not trusting anything from CanWest.
I rather think that they have graduates from the same spin-doctoring school as the Conservatives recruit from.

Further to that, on the Global poll, it says "read article" - but the link is not an article, it's the negative editorial in the Calgary Sun, which is based on (at best) misconceptions.

We are very glad about this coverage tho. It's because of an individual reporter, Peter Harris.
