It's not unexpected that politicians, parties and interest groups get a jump on the writ dropping, especially when speculation is that the PM will go to the GG on Sunday, so I shouldn't be surprised at having recently received political related communications. Actually some of it did surprise me. In the past two days, I've had one voice mail left on my home phone, two text messages on my cell (those three CPC related) and two mailings from anti-abortion groups. The anti-abortion pamphlets were unaddressed admail (one of them with very explicit photos, I'll probably complain to Canada Post about that one *) and were the unexpected items, I had never received such before. While I don't think it was a targeted campaign (being unaddressed mail), it seems more than coincidental that they showed up in home mail boxes so close to speculation that the call to election is likely only a few days away.
The abortion issue as a millstone around the neck of the Conservatives has been mentioned before on these means. A common observation is that abortion is a settled issue and the CPC has no intent in its platform to re-visit the debate. It probably won't help the Conservative narrative (even at the local/reginal level) if anti-abortion groups (whose membership are more likely to be supportive of the CPC than the other major parties) rev up their campaigns as the election approaches.
* I contacted Canada Post about the mailing which contained the photos that disturbed me. Seems like they can't even accept a complaint about it. They are not permitted to refuse mailings, regardless of the content, lest they be accused of censorship.
