Default UCP Vaccine Passport Survey

I know that this could have been put in one of the other threads, but I didn't want it to get burried among all the other posts as it could potentially impact the UCP to finally do something right.

The UCP is surveying Albertans on their feelings regarding a Vaccine Passport. The survey question is completely draped in their ideology. Here is what they ask:

DO YOU STAND AGAINST DOMESTIC VACCINE PASSPORTS IN CANADA?

They have already highlighted the answer they want you to give. Just to be clear, if you believe that a vaccine passport is the right way for Alberta to move forward then you answer NO.

I hope CP can come through with some big numbers here.

On the one hand, I want to send them a message. On the other hand, no way am I sending the UCP my contact information.

I still find it unbelievable, even after 2 years of this government, that they engage in this kind of petty manipulation for things as meaningless as informal polls.

I did it and used Tyler Shandro's constituency office phone number and postal code along with a fake email address.

ďAgainĒ. Isnít the entire point of professional writing to not have it dripping in condescending language?

The survey is bogus. They don't really care what your answer is. I indicated that I was FOR a vaccine passport and this is the response I got:

"Thanks for giving us your feedback on our supporter survey on our fight against vaccine passports.

-Your United Conservative Team"

Followed by links to donate money.

Yeah, it's all designed to get money. At least I skewed their internal results a bit.

The real joke is the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of the e-mail.

It's a broken URL.

Wish I would have given the fake phone number. Don't mind the real email, a couple of quick clicks and they can spam me until the end of time and I'll never see a message from them.

The really funny part(for me, not you) is that the phone number field isn't required.

Default UCP Vaccine Passport Survey

I replied and ccíd Pon, Shandro, and Kenney that I was in fact for a vaccine passport, despite their best efforts to avoid it or make it look like public sentiment is against, and they should get their asses in gear.

It pushed through to a fundraising link too.

I donít think this is a push poll that they will release the results off. This is an angry fundraising poll

Voted. Thanks for stating No was FOR a vaccine passport. Found the wording a bit convoluted and didn’t want to vote incorrectly.

Fill it up with a bottomless amount of made up contact information. There is no way Iím giving these trolls actually useful data.
