NOM and Vota Tus Valores skips over the news they don’t like, but can’t skip over their tour #FAIL

October 03, 2010,

Via Twitter and their website, Vota Tus Valores trumpets this Globe and Mail piece (for those who don’t know, the Globe and Mail is the Canadian paper with the largest circulation nationwide, whose coverage/editorials tend to be more conservative in terms of business and some national political candidates, but social liberal.

Close to 15 counter-protesters arrived early – mostly Latino and mostly from SEIU – were quick to greet the Vota Bus with chants of “si se puede.” There was no one else present in the park for Tus Valores to engage.
