somecanuckchick dot com: Behold the 4 stages of a successful voter suppression plan!

Elections Canada cites 4 stages of a successful voter suppression plan:

— Identify non-supporters;

— Gather information on them;

— Prevent them from going to the polls through scare tactics, misinformation or systematic challenging of registrations;

— If electors get to the polls, prevent them from voting by contesting eligibility or identification, and through intimidation.

Stephen Harper says, “Canadians don’t expect Canada to solve the world’s problems.”

Of course, Canadians don’t expect Canada to solve the world’s problems. Canadians do, however, expect Canada not be part of the problem and Canadians do expect Canada to be part of the solution.

Why is the Globe and Mail, as of March 4, 2015, the first—and the only—Canadian news agency to implement SecureDrop?

One would think that more Canadian news agencies would have implemented the open-source software platform for secure communication between journalists and sources (whistleblowers)… i.e. CBC, Montréal Gazette, Toronto Star, Vancouver Observer, etc., etc., etc.
