In the last days, Mr. Bruinooge has returned to the page and reworked it. Most of the plagiarism is gone and his text improved, which is a good thing. Many errors remain, which do not speak well for this pollster's eye for detail, but let that go.
We now have at least the three versions of KLRVU's page describing why you should participate in their polls. As you can see here, each version has gotten shorter.
One thing that has remained through all three versions of the document is this:
"Do you believe abortionist Henry Morgentaler deserves the Order of Canada?"
Of these 157,115, only 13,324 answered. But even if we accept KLRVU's numbers (which seem inflated), 144,000 must feel like the hypothetical premier-hater in KLRVU's example -- they have not had their opinion recorded.
But the question has to be asked. If non-participation removes from citizens their voice and thereby undermines the validity of a poll, shouldn't the 144,000 non-participants in KLRVU's Mortengaler poll also discredit its results?
