Submission + - Canadian Conservatives Screen Events with Facebook (

sackvillian writes: The Canadian federal election is heating up as opposition parties expressed 'outrage' over the ejection of a couple of university students from a rally for Steven Harper, the current Prime Minister. Two members of the federal RCMP asked the students to leave the rally, allegedly because one of the students posted a picture of herself with an opposition leader on the popular networking site. The students had been required to preregister for the event, which could have provided the opportunity for the Facebook-screening to take place.
