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.

    If all those 27 ridings were affected, there should be a by-election. And usually those happen in the case of an MP...
