why is someone from the house of commons and office of privy council reading my blog for hours?

Progressive bloggers, check your stats.

The Statcounter for wmtc shows "multiple visits spread out over several days" from an IP address in the House of Commons, and a separate visit from the Office of the Privy Council.

This visitor or visitors spent time at several of my "greatest hits" posts, information about my new career, my bio at The Mark, various essays, and a good deal of time searching for "ndp cooksville east mississauga kaminker" and "kaminker member ndp", and the like.

The entry post was this: july 1 2012: national stop harper day. I noticed this post was tweeted a lot yesterday by many anti-Harper Twitter accounts. No doubt government operatives are monitoring those tweets.

Sorry for the small font. There were so many, I could barely fit it in one snip.


Is the Harper GovernmentTM trying to show a connection between National Stop Harper Day and the NDP? (I have no idea if there is a connection.) Do they think "Stop Harper" is meant to be taken literally? Should I expect a visit?

Anyone else seeing this in their stats?

Dear MP (or possibly PM): If you want to know if Laura is a member of the NDP, just call us and ask. We KNOW you have the number.

(A: She is not.)

This afternoon, someone from the Privy Council searched first and then a mere two minutes later, TWO House of Commons people started looking. They stayed on the site for an hour each.

They're just updating their CIMS database so they can robocall non-ReformCons to inform them that the date for Canada day has been changed from July 1st to July 32.

Standard procedure.

Oh yes, of course.

Either that or they're researching my new career so they can offer me a tuition grant.

:) - yes, of course, a tuition grant for the Fraser Institute, and matched $ for $ by Enbridge.

Later today I believe the Harper Government will announce citations of excellence in public service for David Suzuki, Maude Barlow, and war-resister lawyer Alyssa Manning.

Whoo-hoo, it's Bizarro World!
