The curious case of Nipissing-Timiskaming


 

The Globe considers the possibility of a court challenge in Nipissing-Timiskaming.

Mr. Hagborg said local Liberal campaign staffers in Nipissing-Timiskaming initially didn’t think much of the bizarre flood of calls they got on election day from confused voters. In hindsight, he says, they probably should have acted more quickly. “We didn’t really think about it at the time. … We thought it was probably someone playing a practical joke or whatever.”

Now, however, they’re collecting all the reports they can of voting-day interference. Mr. Hagborg said at least 25 complaints refer specifically to prerecorded messages, purportedly from Elections Canada, telling the recipients their polling station was changed. In some cases, residents in rural areas of the riding were sent 20 kilometres out of their way, only to find they were in the wrong place.

  1. The Globe, and the Liberal hacks interviewed, would do well to consult S. 527 of the Canada Elections Act. But they didn’t and won’t, so it’ll come as a delightful shock when they realize the problem with having worked themselves up over ZOMG COURT-ORDERED BYELECTION MAYBE!!, etc.

    • I agree with you.  And a lot of Conservatives should get acquainted with elections financing.  We just can’t continue to appoint fraudsters to the Senate!

    • You would be screaming bloody murder if the Liberals had cooked up this sceme.  I’m surprised you’re not screaming ADSCAM in response.  Whatever happened to that tried-and-true play?
