What do you think about door-knocking?
The incident involving a PC incumbent candidate while door-knocking (Globe) got me thinking back to last year when my team and I were door-knocking throughout the Edmonton-Leduc federal riding. I had commented at the time in regards to the different types of people we were meeting at the door. Interestingly, while I included cases of "slammed doors" and "head shakers" into the group of Conservative supporters in that blog post, in the recent situation it was a conservative (allegedly) attacked by an ultra-conservative just for being there on the doorstep. As, by far, the largest group during door-knocking at any time of day or day of the week was, as reported by all of our canvassing teams, those not home or not opening the door to speak to us, I have a series of questions I would love to hear your opinion about:
