Robogate: Scandal linked to our Prime-Minister an embarrassment to our democracy
What does Prime Minister Harper know, and when did he know it? The Robogate scandal is becoming a national embarrassment and a disgrace to our democracy. I hope the RCMP conducts an in-depth investigation into these serious allegations. Does Elections Canada have the resources to enforce electoral laws? The answer is probably no, and that is why the RCMP needs to conduct the investigation.

Cornwall - March 8, 2012 - What does Prime Minister Harper know, and when did he know it? The Robogate scandal is becoming a national embarrassment and a disgrace to our democracy. I hope the RCMP conducts an in-depth investigation into these serious allegations. Does Elections Canada have the resources to enforce electoral laws? The answer is probably no, and that is why the RCMP needs to conduct the investigation. Canadians deserve answers. It should not be like in those third-world countries, where the UN has to come-in and ensure fair elections.

When honest hardworking Canadian citizens get phoney calls from a company - linked to the Prime Minister - lying and making false claims like their voting station has changed locations is detrimental and harmful to our democracy, and it raises some serious and legitimate questions. Racknine Inc. has been linked to the robocalls, and this company has worked for the Tories and for Harper himself. This scandal has the potential to create disillusionment and turn-off voters. Misdirecting voters, and making it difficult for them to vote is illegal. We as Canadians have a fundamental right to cast a ballot in a free and fair election, and that right should not be obstructed in anyway.

At least 34 riding’s across Canada have become disenfranchised. The Conservatives could have lost at least six battleground riding’s according to an article from the Toronto Star because of this voter suppression. Even without those six seats, the Conservatives would have still won the election, but the real issue is the harm these robocalls have done to shake the confidence of everyday Canadian citizens for our democratic institutions. The Prime Minister says he is innocent, and he has publicly protested his innocence. The only way to find out if Harper and the Conservatives are innocent or guilty is by conducting a proper investigation. Tens of thousands of Canadians have been demanding answers, and that number is growing each day!
