Liberal candidate caught using City of Vancouver resources to campaign

There’s no way as Chief Digital Officer for the City of Vancouver, Adcock shouldn’t have known this was highly inappropriate and assuredly against City policy as well as breaking Elections Canada rules.

I’ll be filing a complaint with both.

Update: Adcock and/or the City of Vancouver has now deleted her account:

You may as well lodge a complaint against NDP mlas in Alberta campaigning for Mulcair at the same time. I’m sure they would be expensing their time etc to the taxpayer.
