Military mum during election campaign

CP and some media outlets are decrying what they view as an attempt to keep Afghanistan out of the federal election. It’s pretty usual, however, for civil servants of all types to keep their heads down during a campaign; some provinces, like Saskatchewan, have legislation that dictates what kind of communications can be done during a campaign, in an attempt to ensure sitting governments don’t take advantage of a campaign to flood the airwaves with feel-good ads, at the public expense.
