    Hey fellow Canadians....are any of you getting numerous calls from federal political parties?

    I've been receiving numerous calls from the libs and cons. - over and over for the past few months...sometimes 2 or 3 times a day...i 'call blocked' the numbers and they kept calling anyway...i'm waiting for the NDPs (doubt if the Bloc will call) to start up...they haven't yet.  I have never ever experienced anything like this before....what's up...what am i missing, except the usual politics?

    I finally over xmas, called both no.'s back and left messages to stop harassing me at home - WOW!...it's been over the top...it has stopped so far for the past week and i've unblocked the no.'s to see what happens.

    Same happening else where?...it can't be just me? lol!
