Commissioner of Canada Elections
c/o Elections Canada
257 Slater Street
Mr. Marc Mayrand,
I am writing in my capacity as Leader of the Green Party of Canada and Member of Parliament Elect for Saanich – Gulf Islands to respectfully draw your attention to a serious breach of the Canada Elections Act.
During Election Day, May 2nd 2011, Canadians from coast to coast reported receiving bogus calls misdirecting them to the wrong polling stations.
This sort of activity is a clear breach of the Canada Elections Act. As Section 281(g) states, “No person shall, inside or outside Canada, wilfully prevent or endeavour to prevent an elector from voting at an election“. I join my constituents in their calls for a full investigation of this electoral obstruction.
Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated.
Elizabeth May, O.C. MP
Leader of the Green Party of Canada
Member of Parliament Elect for Saanich – Gulf Islands
