This past Tuesday Ottawa journalists received a strange, almost out-of-context e-mail from Fred DeLorey, Director of Communications for the Conservative Party of Canada.
With no background narrative, DeLorey launched straight in with his message:
"In regards to the calls last week that went into Saskatchewan concerning redistribution, the calls came from the Conservative Party."
He then added a carefully worded explanation, which was, almost deliberately, vague:
"There was an internal miscommunication on the matter, and the calls should have been identified as coming from the Conservative Party."
