Below is my comment left on Sixth Estate regarding the disastrously wrong Supreme Court decision yesterday. It protects the sanctity of election fraud, instead of Canadians’ right to vote in fair elections.
It’s “irregular” for there to be missing documents and many missing signatures from people vouched for. If it was regular, then there’d be tens of thousands of these cases across the country to point to. The majority on the SCOC decided to ignore the overall point of the challenge in handling the mistakes as their own isolated events, in a deliberate attempt to change the lower court’s justifiable ruling. If ten polls were this irregular, it’s reasonable to conclude that multiple more polls would have in excess of 26 votes missing legitimate documentation and voters. Sadly, logic was not in play in this disgraceful ruling.
In addition, as you’ve pointed out, they’ve made a partisan jab at the Liberals and Borys W., despite the fact that no one identifiable would be disenfranchised by overturning the election and holding another, because there would be ANOTHER ELECTION. You know, where the supposedly disenfranchised would get to vote. Also, if no victims can be identified (because the documents are missing), how can the SCOC claim that there’s anyone disenfranchised? They should prove it.
We are all justified in feeling sad about people getting away with election fraud.
The SCOC must not be allowed to say we have a right to vote, but that our votes can be drowned out by fraud and not trigger a by-election when the irregularities unquestionably impacted the result.
There are people working on bringing criminals to justice, but few are in offices of power. Support your fellow citizens, and speak up about the crimes against our democracy, until justice is served to the guilty. Time is running out, and the guilty are gloating.
