Divide And Rule: Inside The Liberal Mind.

CBC pollster Frank Graves was taken to task for comments he made to the Globe and Mail about creating a "culture war" as a means by which the Liberal party can wrestle away support for the ruling Conservative Party. From the Ottawa Sun:

Conservative Party of Canada president John Walsh sent a letter Thursday to the CBC's Ombudsman charging that EKOS pollster Frank Graves' comments reported in the Globe and Mail that day raise "serious questions about the impartiality of Canada's publicly funded national broadcaster."

"Why is a pollster who conducts polling for Canada's national broadcaster, the CBC, also giving partisan advice to the Liberal Party of Canada?" Walsh writes in a letter obtained exclusively by QMI Agency.

[...]

"I told them that they should invoke a culture war. Cosmopolitanism versus parochialism, secularism versus moralism, Obama versus Palin, tolerance versus racism and homophobia, democracy versus autocracy," Graves is quoted in the story. "If the cranky old men in Alberta don't like it, too bad. Go south and vote for Palin."


Conservative commentator Ezra Levant has more to say about it here.

Frank Graves comments are revealing. It makes one wonder how many of Canada's political and cultural elite think this way. It also makes one wonder what role mass immigration and multiculturalism play in this culture war. Are these policies being used for the betterment of Canada and Canadians or are they a way of organizing the electorate, to pacify traditional Canada to accept progressive social engineering projects whether they want them or not, to divide and rule?
