Only invited guests are able to attend Stephen Harper's campaign rallies. But regular Canadians did get the chance to ask the prime minister questions during a public Q&A session with Facebook Tuesday afternoon.
Of the around two-dozen questions that Harper answered, one was from Facebook user Braydon Mazurkiewich. He asked Harper "how much higher will our taxes go if Justin (Trudeau) or (Tom) Mulcair are elected?"
As with fake "town hall" sessions full of pre-vetted supporters, politicians are increasingly using formats where they can control the conversation.
