Can you see the crowds? I bet Laurie Hawn the Conservative MP is shaking in his ex-military boots!
Here we have ex-PM Paul Martin and the Liberal candidate cutting into the crowd to get their hot dogs!
What a success, one Liberal supporter shows up to see the ex-PM Paul Martin, Mary is sure to win this riding! HA! I drive through the riding every weekday, Laurie Hawn is winning the sign war, and I see more NDP signs than Liberal signs. I don't think Conservative MP Laurie Hawn needs to worry too much. I am sure that all 50 people who showed up to listen to Iggy and Martin are going to "rise up" any minute now!
This poster says it perfectly:
Bringing out the politically dead. Jean and Paul, should be great ambassadors to a dying party.
cantucIggy screamed "rise up rise up " and sure enough out came Jean and Paulie. Hey Iggy , could you bring back my sainted grandmothers while your raising the dead ?
Elections Canada is doing everything they can to help call out the dead, or in this case, not eligible to vote. Can Elections Canada get anymore ridiculous, it would be funny but they are endangering our democracy.
CALGARY -- Questions are hovering over Elections Canada’s voter registry following the recent distribution of information cards to untold numbers of those ineligible to even cast a ballot.
Elections Canada officials couldn’t provide an assurance illegal voters possessing the cards could be vetted at ballot stations.
Mizue Asai, a Japanese emigrant who has lived in Calgary for nine years, was perplexed upon receiving a notice which indicated she is registered to vote, in spite of the fact she is not a Canadian citizen.
It is “at least” the second she’s received since living in Canada, said the 39-year-old.
Under the Canada Elections Act, only Canadian citizens 18 years or older qualify to vote.
“I’ve always thought it was strange because I know I can’t vote,” Asai said.
News reports state other foreigners living in Calgary have received the cards, which indicate their designated voting station.
Elections Canada's reaction?
Saulnier said there are procedures in place to ensure non-citizens are prevented from casting ballots.Elections Canada is lying. If you show up with a voters card, you don't usually have to show any other documents, and they would certainly NOT know that you are not a Canadian citizen. The card means that you are on the voters list, and your address will be listed, they take the card, cross off your name, and away you go to vote. Elections Canada allows a "mob vote" to stand even though it broke two or three rules, and now this? Something stinks.
“If they show up at a poll to vote, they are going to have to prove who they are, where they live, so there is an opportunity to ensure the person who is going to vote is legitimately entitled to vote,” he said.
In the end, the real deterrents are the legal punishments, which include fines, jail time or both, he said.
“If they choose to vote knowingly, and they’re not qualified to do so, then they’re liable for an offence under the electoral act,” he said.
Another Elections Canada employee was surprised by the revelations surrounding voter information cards.
“In all honesty, I’ve never come across that. Mind you, even if there was only one instance of it, that’s too many,” he said.
Iggy is going to get this guy to "rise up" next!
Liberals, bringing out their politically dead!
