Call for an Inquiry into the 2011 Election Fraud
I asked Jim what I should write a blog post on and he suggested this petition calling for an inquiry into the fraud in the last federal elections, and the robocalls that targeted non-conservative voters. As always, Jim's innate understanding of important current issues are keen, especially in light of The Fair Elections Act being presented by the Conservatives. This Act- written and proposed without any input from the Chief Electoral Officer- does nothing to try and ensure that similar fraud cannot happen in the future. And it's no coincidence that it's being presented in the election scandal's wake. It feels more like an attack and a strategy than a genuine attempt to improve the election process. If you think this Act is in anyway something to be proud of, try finding any reference to it on the Conservative's website.
