"I can't believe that proposition will instil trust in the citizenry of this country,"Judge Thomas LedererActually your Honour not enforcing the electoral laws of this country is what doesn't instill trust in the citizenry of this country Not ensuring the results of an election truly reflect the will of the people definitely doesn't instill trust. Forms missing addresses no proof of ID,missing forms are not "clerical errors", they are serious omissions that could be exploited by those intent on committing fraud,something that has been in the news a little lately.. We are talking about 181 ballots from ten polls only representing approx.5% of the riding, so certainly the scale of these "clerical errors" is immense.
In addition it is extremely troubling to see Elections Canada circle the wagons in this fashion, worrying more about their image and protecting their turf instead of being concerned about making sure our elections are run in a fair and competent manner. Watching them allow the Conservatives to basically walk on the In and Out scandal only to see them repeat that illegal tactic again in this past election (where is this investigation) and now this, has certainly not instilled trust in Elections Canada in fact quite the opposite.
Update: Added link that I forgot to add yesterday. My bad,but in my defense Hey mistakes happen don't ya know.
