No evidence against Conservatives in robocalls scandal

Employees at a Thunder Bay call centre assigned to make deceitful calls on the Federal Election Day were fully aware of the misleading nature of their task. Former employees say they knew what they were doing was fraudulent.

“We would call these (voters) and they would say ‘we went there and that’s not a real place,’” said a former Responsive Marketing Group Inc. employee who cannot be named.  “The whole call centre (noticed it was happening).

“We called the RCMP. We actually also told our supervisor about it. [However no action was taken].”

Despite all the hoo-ha, there is no evidence that this fraudulent act was backed by the Conservative Party of Canada. According to the Elections Act, it is against the law to notify voters to go to an off beam or non-existent polling station.

According to Interim Liberal leader Bob Rae, he knows of 27 Liberal ridings that received robocalls.

He said: “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.”

Interim federal NDP leader Nycole Turmel says the feds are not in charge of investigating such issues.

“It is really sad for the election process,” said Ms. Turmel in Toronto. “This doesn’t help people who don’t vote, to come back and believe in the election process.”

  1. Stephen Harper, Rob Nicholson, John Baird, Jim Flaherty, Diane Finley, Peter MacKay, Tom Lukiwski and Vic Toews, along with the rest of the Conservatives are liars, cheats and thieves! Bill-C10 threatens to throw many in jail longer and needlessly! Bill C-11 would strip Canadians of even more rights to what we already own and censor our flow of information! Bill-30 will strip us of our privacy! Now lets not forget the G20 fiasco, Vic Toews immortal speech about Canadians being pedophiles, the planned pension cuts, they place gag orders on those they appoint to various studies so that if the studies turn up data contradicting their comment_content_IDeals, they can suppress the data, or their election fraud, and now they can’t even get our budget out on time!
    The fascist Conservatives would turn our country into an Orwellian nightmare! How can they even call themselves a legitimate government?! How dare they act like they have our best interests in mind! Who do they think they are telling us what we need and how to live our lives?! They’re the mcomment_IDdle management and we’re the ones who hired them! We should be telling them what we want and how we want it!
    Canada needs to rise up march on Ottawa and occupy the parliament! We need to take back our country, remove the Conservatives from power! Our government, as a whole needs to be dismantled and rebuilt (that goes for those other parties as well. I’m looking at you Liberals and NDP. Fat load of good they’ve ever done for the country)! All our political parties have ever really done to us has been to divcomment_IDe Canadians. This only serves to make us easy prey for predators in the night! I say no more! Canadians need to stand up as one, divcomment_IDed by zero! Those that would appose the will of the people need to be taught a lesson, followed by some good old fashion tarring and feathering, finish with banishing traitors from Canada! Finally Canadians need some laws that allow us to force referendums on the government and punish corrupt politicians who think they can screw with their people, their employers, you and me! Fellow Canadians I implore you raise up and shout out your discontent for the horrible state of our country and the world for that matter. Shout from every mountain top (comment_content_author_email, letters, phone calls, blogs, forums, twitter, youtube, ect…), “WE WILL NOT STAND FOR CORRUPTION WITHIN OUR GOVERNMENT! WE WILL NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT AS OUR FREEDOMS ARE SLOWLY ERODED! WE’RE COMING FOR YOU HARPER REGIEM! EXPECT US!” Let the voice of the masses resinate as one, thundering and deafening our oppressors. Keep screaming and screaming, every day, all day, don’t stop screaming until this country is ours again!
    ‘Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad!… You’ve got to say, “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!” Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the windows, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: “I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!”
    ‘People shouldn’t fear the government, the government should fear the people!’
