Elections Canada and RCMP Investigating 2011 Canadian Election Voter Fraud
The number of ridings that received alleged voter-suppression calls in the last federal election is greater than previously thought, opposition MPs say.
NDP MP Pat Martin told CTV’s Question Period that he knows of 34 ridings that received calls advising people that their voting station had changed, and that number is growing.
“You can’t overstate how serious that is,” Martin said. “The most fundamental freedom that we enjoy as citizens in a democracy is the right to vote, free and fair and with-out interference.”
Interim Liberal leader Bob Rae told CTV Sunday that he knows of 27 Liberal ridings that received calls.
“What inevitably happens is that people will look back at what they thought was an isolated incident in their riding and then they begin to understand that it may have been part of some sort of larger pattern,” Rae said.
