Elections Canada has heard complaints of dirty tricks in the 2011 election from over 200 ridings. Many of the grievances don’t amount to much, sources say, but a substantial number are thought to be of a serious nature. A source with knowledge of the Elections Canada probe said investigators are handicapped because they are being blocked from gaining access to Conservative party records. As a result, he said there is only a small chance of charges beyond those against Sona being laid.
The sooner the police ask for warrants to gain access to evidence about possible voter suppression crimes, the better for our democracy.
