choongiri writes “Elections Canada has just traced thousands of illegal phone calls made during the 2011 federal election to a company that worked for the Conservative Party across the country. The automated VOIP ‘robocalls’ appeared to be designed to stop non-Conservative voters from casting ballots in key ridings by falsely telling voters that the location of their polling stations had changed, causing them to go to the wrong location on election day. This news casts serious doubt on the legitimacy of Canada’s Government. The Conservatives narrowly won their ‘majority’ by 6,201 votes in 14 ridings, with only 39% of the popular vote.” For those as unfamiliar with the term “riding” in this context as I was, here’s Wikipedia’s explanation.
