Ontario PCs, get your email domain straight!

I've been working with SCI Ontario on a campaign to engage the candidates in the upcoming Ontario election on issues related to spinal cord injuries. Take a look at the main campaign page.

Part of the campaign is to provide a form that allows the public to send emails to the candidates of their riding. I've been using OpenNorth to get the candidate data, and it's great.

Except for the Ontario PCs, because almost none of their email addresses @ontariopc.ca work.

So this morning we noticed that Doug Ford is advertising his address @ontariopc.com, presumably touting his business-friendly attitude and assuming a ".com" is more business-like that ".ca".

So we retried the candidate addresses, this time using @ontariopc.com, and none of the candidates are setup at that domain.

What does this tell you about Doug Ford's potential administration? Leaving it as an exercise for the reader ...
