During the 2011 federal election, Canadians in many targeted ridings across the country were contacted by automated calls and individuals providing false and misleading information.
These dishonest tactics were deliberately used to weaken Canada's electoral process and discourage people from participating in our democratic system. These actions are crimes, under the Elections Act. The extent of the black ops political interference may rise to the level of election fraud.
The existence of a well-orchestrated, complex and extensive scheme to interfere with the right of Canadians to vote is far more serious than the sponsorship scandal.
We need a full, independent and transparent inquiry.
