UPDATE : Welcome Globe and Mail Readers, you might consider reading this article after this one;
- Elections Canada distributes voters lists to all parties that are running at the start of the election and a send update list three days before the official election date.
- Elections Canada’s voter list consist of the voters name and address, no phone numbers, no polling station information.
- The Political Parties have to marry the EC voter lists with phone numbers
From this we can conclude that Pierre Poutine had to have gotten this phone lists from one of the Party Campaign lists, there is no way around that, so deal with it. Now there is one more trick Poutine had to be able to pull off, he had to be able to differentiate each voter phone number with a polling station in order to redirect them to a fake polling station, of his choosing, that was still within their polling area.
- Elections Canada has stated that they do not release polling location connected to the Voter’s name and address list that they distribute to the political parties.
- Elections Canada has revealed that for the first time, occurring in the 2011 election, one party request the polling information every voter on the lists. Elections Canada gave this information to the CPC on the request to the CPC. Now to be fair Elections Canada also then release this added information to all Parties. So the CPC had to have a purpose for this added information and had the mechanisms in place to utilize it. The other parties, not so much.
- The CPC Guelph campaign used Rack-Nine to do their automated phone calls.
- The CPC Guelph campaign mysteriously forgot to include their Rack-Nine invoices in their financial statement to Elections Canada. This would most likely never had come to light if it had not been the Election Canada’s investigation.
- Pierre Poutine purchased and used a “Burner” Cell Phone from the Guelph area.
- Pierre Poutine used Rack-Nine to commit his voter suppression fraud.
- The CPC still refuse to release their phone records publicly.
- The CPC earlier refused to grant Elections Canada the powers to audit local campaign financial records, instead allowing local campaign’s do their own private audits. Mighty convenient isn’t it, I’d like to hear how this lack of independent oversight is going to catch future “missed and forgotten” invoices. Seems mighty convenient for a party convicted of breaking election spending rules in the past to easily hide present and future spending violations.
So who is trying to hide what now?
