For those who didn’t notice that post squeak by:
Conservatives committed alleged electoral fraud in up to 27 Ridings during the 2011 election
SO, for those who want the TL;DR of it: Conservative campaign staff in 27 hotly contested Ontario ridings during the last Federal Election were found to be calling voters past 10 pm, posing as Liberal staff looking to have voter support in an effort to alienate and frustrate Canadians against voting for Michael Ignatieff and the Liberal Party.
But that’s not all, “robo-calls” originating from Conservative campaign offices in 18 election ridings featuring a pre-recorded message pretending to be Elections Canada staff notified registered voters that that polling/voting station had moved to another location. One false relocation site was even a busy downtown mall where confused voters were driven into frustration over being unable to find the alleged polling station.
Considering that one of these affected ridings was won by a Conservative candidate by a margin of 27 votes, this is a serious breach in democratic trust and transparency.
Stephen Harper and the Conservatives are now no better than Vladimir Putin and the United Russia party.
