Canadian politics : Halifax councillor releases cybersquatted domains

All is fair in love and war, and the latter incorporates politics.

A Canadian councillor was apparently ill-advised, when she registered the full name of a political opponent.

Halifax Regional councillor, Linda Mosher, initially registered the domains and, as part of her political strategy.

Shawn Cleary is the name of a political opponent, who publicly announced his participation in the October civic election for the District 9-Halifax West Armdale seat.

Ms. Mosher has held that position for the past 16 years.

While this act of political cybersquatting isn’t a new practice, it’s definitely not very ethical.

Linda Mosher announced today that she’s releasing those two domain names and will focus on her own campaign and web site, offering an apology, which Mr. Shawn Cleary accepted.
