“the Court has acknowledged the utmost public importance of these proceedings, and has held that:
“…. the applications raise serious issues about the integrity of the democratic process in Canada and identify practices that if proven, point to a campaign of activities that would seek to deny eligible voters their right to vote and/or manipulate or interfere with that right being exercised freely – all of which if permitted to escape even the prospect of judicial scrutiny, could shake public confidence and trust in the electoral process and in those who in good faith stand for public office.”
It’s only the basis of our democratic process that is at stake. So why has it taken over a year for Elections Canada to investigate and charge some people behind the criminal conspiracy?
