Volpe - What if he was PM?

Stephen Taylor is reporting that Joe Volpe's staff had the "Youth For Volpe" site TAKEN DOWN.

If this is how he deals with critizim while he's a leadership candidate, can you imagine what he might try to pull as PM?

And the Press Gallery thought Harper was bad...

UPDATE: It appears the rumors that Volpe had something to do with it being pulled may have been untrue. It has returned...

    I couldn't imagine, because this defies the laws of physics.

    How can a website be shut down?

    Ottawa, June 2, 2006 – The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) issued a statement today in which it clarifies erroneous information referencing its part in shutting down

    Recent events related through the media indicated that Liberal MP Joe Volpe's staff had requested CIRA suspend

    Bernard Turcotte, CIRA's President and CEO states "We have no record of any contact between CIRA and Mr. Volpe or his staff. Furthermore, CIRA does not deal with website content. This is and continues to be a guiding principle underlying our operations."

    He added that no CIRA staff undertook any actions with respect to but rather that the Registrar for the domain name requested, via CIRA's automated systems, that the domain name be cancelled, as is allowed under the rules. The registrar advised CIRA that it made this request because its registrant would not provide valid Canadian contact information.

    Under CIRA's registrar rules, the registrar had to act once it confirmed it could not obtain valid Canadian contact information from the registrant.

    This is in no way an exceptional case, CIRA and CIRA Certified Registrars cancel domain name registrations on a regular basis for these exact reasons.

    More information about CIRA policies can be found at

    CIRA is the not-for-profit corporation mandated to operate the dot-ca top-level domain for all Canadians. It is responsible for setting policy and managing the 690,000 plus dot-ca domain name database as well as registering domain names through its network of Certified Registrars.
