Open letter to MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay,
I am writing to you today to express my deep concern about alleged election fraud in the last federal election. The news I am hearing about the robocall election fraud scandal keeps getting worse. Emerging reports are showing that illegal calls took place in dozens of key swing ridings all over the country.
It takes a lot of money and major phone number databases to target voters in multiple close ridings. Who paid for this? Where did the database lists come from? Who gave the go-ahead for this to take place?
As a Canadian, I know I am not alone in wanting an immediate and publicly accountable investigation in all affected ridings. Canadians need a full public inquiry to learn what happened and to restore the basic integrity of our democracy.
This appears to be more than just one-off monkeying around. If this is highly organized and systematic electoral fraud, it is a serious crime and a direct attack on our democracy. Taking away a person's right to vote is inexcusable. There should be real consequences for electoral fraud. And the federal government should start acting like the government representing all Canadians, not just the Conservative party.
Canadians deserve a full public inquiry into this mess. I look forward to your specific response to this letter and request. A reply just saying you received my letter is not satisfactory.
Deirdre Whalen Richmond
