I think it should be viewed as worse than Russian hackers, physically and monetarily influencing an election in a foreign country. Bragging a success rate of 96% in targeting of 29 key ridings, it should have a lot of people miffed no matter what political party they support.

I think the surprise should be if nothing and no one influenced the elections, ever anywhere.

I know that unions send along a little notice that explains which party is most union friendly to their particular union.

Millions in foreign funds spent in 2015 Federal election to defeat Harper Government report alleges

LINK


Quote:

A December 2015 Leadnow report, Defeating Harper, discusses how effective its campaign was in the 2015 general election. “The Conservatives were defeated in 25 out of 29 ridings, and . . . in the seats the Conservatives lost, our recommended candidate was the winner 96 per cent of the time.”
Leadnow’s Defeat Harper report also states: “We selected target ridings with field teams run by paid Leadnow organizers….”
Crockatt lost her Calgary Centre seat by 750 votes.
Conservative MP Lawrence Toet lost his Manitoba seat of Elmwood-Transcona to the NDP’s Daniel Blaikie by just 61 votes.

Quote:

Leadnow staff members flew around the country on numerous occasions, as Facebook postings and photographs show, to distribute flyers and put up signs. Also, 57 local polls were commissioned across 37 ridings urging citizens to strategically vote for the most winnable, left-of-centre candidate in order to defeat the Conservative candidate.
There is an $8,788 spending limit per riding for the election. NDP candidates and even CUPE complained about Leadnow’s activities being anti-democratic.
“This is not a partisan issue or a case of sour grapes by Conservatives,” insists Hallman, 20.
“This is a Canadian issue. This affects all Canadians whether you’re an NDP, Green, Liberal or Conservative. You should be very concerned about foreign money being spent in Canada during an election campaign.”

Quote:

Canadians can only donate $1,550 to political parties and candidates. Union and corporate donations have been banned completely, and yet in the Senate hearing, Commissioner Cote said that as long as foreign money is donated to a third party six months prior to the election writ being dropped, the amount that can be donated is endless.
Frum made the following observation during the April 13 senate hearing: “I could take a cheque for $10 million from Saudi Arabia, from Iran, from China — I could take any amount of money from a foreign contributor so long as I, a Canadian citizen, am receiving it?”
Cote said as long as funds are received six months before an election “the third party is free to use that money.”
“Most Canadians would be very alarmed by this,” added Frum. “This happened in the 2015 election.”

If you want to know who is doing all the external election rigging, just insult israel as a candidate and see how that effects your election returns

Canada Must Ban George Soros Foundations Now
Along with giving billions to left-wing socialist organizations Soros also attempts to influence elections, as in the recent American election and other nations. Even within nations his foundations fund and support groups such as the Dogwood Initiative based in British Columbia. This group’s stated goal is to influence Canadian elections in federal ridings.

"I'm sure speculative actions have had some negative consequences. But that does not enter my thinking at all. It cannot. If I abstained from certain actions because of moral doubts, then I would cease to be an effective speculator. I have not even a shadow of remorse for making a profit. I did it only to make money."

This is the George Soros who is behind the financing of many of the hysterics being directed against the new U.S. President. Through front organizations like MoveOn.org, Soros bankrolled the "spontaneous" protests across the country after the results of the November elections were announced.

Soros' charitable foundation (sic), the Open Society Fund, poured money into many of the organizations that turned out on Saturday to protest that Donald Trump is "not our President." Sic Semper Tyrannis : HARPER: GEORGE SOROS DECLARES WAR ON PRESIDENT TRUMP

Just so you can see his real attitude right from the whorse's mouth himself.
here read:

from the link
"Steve Kroft asked the Hungarian-born speculator about his teenage years in Budapest, under the Nazi occupation. Soros freely admitted that he had been protected by a Nazi collaborator.

Kroft asked: "My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours... went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews." Soros answered: "Yes. That's right. Yes."

Kroft: "That sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?" Soros: "Not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don't see the connection. But it created no problem at all." Kroft: "No feeling of guilt?"

Soros: "No." Asked how he could have watched fellow Jews be sent to the slaughter, Soros elaborated: "Well, of course I could be on the other side, or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away.

But there was no sense that i shouldn't be there, because that was--well, actually, in a funny way, it's just like in markets--that if I weren't there--of course I wasn't doing it, but somebody else would--would--would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the--whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the--I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.""

and he hasn't been hung by the nazi hunters....eh?

But at least they are Canadians trying to influence a Canadian election


And I agree with Danbones in regards to Soros

Local elections are influenced by people with money or property. Why wouldn't it happen at all levels of government?
