There is one thing I'm trying to get my head around. Sending voters to the wrong polling station to steal votes!!!!!!!!!!!!! Isn't that about as effective as pulling teeth through the A$$hole?
Listened to Lowell Green's stand in today - Normal partisan hacks - read Conservatives called in - their main comments wer along the lines of the Liberals as sore losers - Guess they think the law should apply only when???? it serves their own interests.
My opinion as i mentioned is 1 court case overturning an election result. Found a list of riding targeted and some riding were real close.
4. Etobicoke Centre (ON) Cons 21 644 – Libs - 21 618 - 26 votes.
We will see a court case.
Which makes it all the more stupid!
Sure hope so, once it's determined who was behind this skulduggery. Sh*t like this will probably result in poor voter turnout in future elections as more people see what a farce the system is. On another note, I think out of 308 ridings it is probably expected that a small handful will be won by a handful of votes, so it's doubtful if the numbers themselves will prove much.
Nope, I've been around too long for much to surprise me. Also at the outset of an election we are not sure just exactly which seats those 10% will be. There are generally some seats that are predicted to favour the winner and others that are predicted to favour the loser, but nothing is carved in stone due to the fickleness of many voters and even greater fickleness of many candidates. Sh*t happens in pig pens!
Whoever did this had access to voter lists across the country and knew which ridings were close. Since all the beneficiaries of this interference were conservatives, that narrows it down to a Conservative political strategist as being directly or indirectly involved. Its possible the trail could lead to the PMO.
