Blocked Comment

I have to include my followup comment on my blog, because this blog suddenly blocked new replies.

Most forms of voter suppression are illegal. Attack ads are not included in the illegal category, event though they are shown to statistically reduce voter turnout.

The cause for delay in charges cannot be the number of complaints. If the complaints are valid, as you say, only a small number of them need to be taken to start to press charges, and the others can be piled on later. If a serial killer is caught, are police going to refuse to press murder charges for the first few they’ve linked him to, or wait until they’re sure they’ve got them all? Come on!

Who would win, is immaterial. The Act says anyone in a riding, within 30 days of when they should have known, can apply to a Superior court for a byelection.

If the courts do not do this, and no brave citizens step forward, it may come to waiting a few years for the Conservatives to be crushed PC circa 1993 style at the polls, and our nation will have delayed justice, while we’re ruled illegitimately by a party that benefited from some supporters who used fraud.

And the Crown can call an election, but our system is not set up with checks and balances if an unscrupulous PM comes to power with a willing team of majority sheep MPs. The Prime Minister’s ability to appoint GG, Senators, Supreme Court judges, RCMP Commissioner, and with a majority Parliament remove funding for Elections Canada to conduct investigations, leaves Canada vulnerable to the whims of a few. What would happen if our expectation that these appointments, and the PM be honourable, were in fact misplaced? What recourse could you suggest, that wouldn’t face insurmountable problems?

  1. I too was unable to comment on that site.

    It is not unreasonable to call by-elections in ridings in which the number of completed fraudulent calls was greater than the Conservative margin of victory – especially once Elections Canada and the RCMP pinpoint where the lists came from. I agree that the demand for an entire re-do of the general election is an unnecessary distraction.

    “important not to confuse and conflate a lack of confidence in the government with a lack of confidence in the electoral system and mechanisms for voting.”

    I for one do not have confidence in Canada’s winner-take-all voting system. It is at the root of this fraud because power is won or lost based on a few voters in a few ridings (less than 10,000 voters made the difference between a “majority” and minority government last spring).

    It’s time that Canada join the 21st century and modernize our voting system.

    Simple answer… don’t vote NDP!!
