On 7:13pm May 11th 2012 I received a call-back from a survey company hired by the City of Nanaimo looking for input (answers to questions) from residents aged 18-30 regarding important community information.
Elections Canada has just traced illegal phone calls made during the 2011 federal election to a company that worked for the Conservative Party across the country. The “robocalls” appeared to be designed to stop non-Conservative voters from casting ballots in key ridings by falsely telling voters that the location of their polling stations had changed, causing them to go to the wrong location on election day. This news casts doubt on the legitimacy of their majority Government. The Conservatives only narrowly won their majority by 6,201 votes in 14 ridings. (UPDATE: Now over 40 ridings!!!!!)
