Will the police keep the phone as it keeps generating evidence? For how long? Can you refuse to provide your password or will the police IT department bypass it?
In Gary Shteyngart’s 2010 novelSuper Sad True Love Story of a terrible future, everyone walks around with an “apparati,” a data-collection rating device on their chest. It’s like wearing an open cellphone. This court ruling takes us one step closer to this.
Avoiding any responsibility was no small feat for the Conservative party, given how strongly the evidence pointed to some sort of organized scheme, presumably involving the authorization — or at least the tacit co-operation — of high-level officials within the party.
Indeed, in a 100-page ruling, Federal Court Judge Richard Mosley found that there was an organized campaign of voter suppression, and that the information used to make misleading phone calls to non-Conservative voters (Read more…)
“If the Commissioner of Canada Elections is prepared to ignore the findings of two judges, I think that will speak very poorly of the powers of investigations we have in this country to explore electoral fraud.”
Côté has not yet responded to May’s complaint.
It’s absolutely unacceptable that Elections Canada failed to contact the leader of a national political party after they made a formal complaint in 2011 alleging election fraud took place on a wide scale.
Here’s yet another example of Conservatives behaving criminally, and being let off the hook by Elections Canada. There’s such a culture of crime in the Conservative Party, I wonder when it will be deregistered as a legitimate political party in Canada. With election fraud examples from the past three elections, what’s the hold-up? I wouldn’t expect any other party to survive a review at Elections Canada after consecutive dirty, unethical election attempts.
Because the Guelph Liberal campaign was fined for not self-identifying in a robocall about their opponent’s position on abortion, the Conservatives ran a “clean and ethical campaign”. The crime of another party washes them clean. It’s very Jesus-like, somehow. Have them explain it to you, it’s beyond me.
“The Conservative Party ran a clean and ethical campaign. We spend our campaigns identifying supporters and getting them out to vote,” Cory Hann wrote in an email.
The Queen’s act against this homeless woman is unkind, and Canada’s laws shouldn’t be unkind for the sake of protecting unused land from First Nations people building a temporary home. Further, we don’t need to urbanize more people, and this law is clearly aimed at clearing Canada’s wilderness of humans, and putting them into overcrowded cities without the means to buy food, shelter, and drink.
The Prime Minister’s first attack dog on the RoboCon file, Dean Del Mastro, has been found guilty of election fraud in 2008. The courts haven’t really caught up fully with the Conservatives’ election frauds of 2011, but they’ve already convicted Michael Sona after accepting Andrew Prescott’s worthless, immunized testimony about Pierre Poutine. Poutine’s actions had been defended by Del Mastro at the behest of the Prime Minister, in 2012.
It’s been thirty years or so since there was a coordinated terrorist attack in Canada – the bombing of the Litton plant in Toronto that was making guidance systems for American cruise missiles. Since then, and especially since 9/11, we’ve kind of hoped and prayed that it wouldn’t happen again. Well, it has.
Two days after a soldier was shot and killed and another maimed at Saint Jean sur
Alison at Creekside has a much better summary of what’s happening behind the scenes on the RoboCon movie than I could hope to write. Warning: If you keep reading though, you may feel the urge to spend $20 or more dollars toward exposing Canada’s most effective election fraud criminals.
The latest Coyne article seems to be self defeating in its thesis.
“It’s not evident what contribution another public inquiry would make,” opines Coyne.
For one thing, we could have an inquiry to demonstrate that for Coyne. Or we could for once listen to what First Nations people want out of the Canadian government, rather than what a mainstream newspaper columnist in Toronto wants for First Nations people. The act of the federal government doing what First Nations want over what white people in Ontario want, would be a step in the right direction to healing some of the rifts (Read more…)
While Sona’s been found guilty of one charge, questions remain about how he would have managed to have log files removed from CPC Headquarter’s computer database known as CIMS.
"There is no record of the accused accessing that database at anytime" Hearn says, but notes others did, incl. Ken Morgan.— Glen McGregor (@glen_mcgregor) August 14, 2014
Sona did not have computer access, or skills to perform that part of the cover-up, so how did those log files go missing. How did unnamed Conservatives in Ottawa avoid obstruction charges for their apparent participation?
So, Judge Hearn is methodically dismantling evidence (Read more…)
An important trial in Canadian history is underway in Guelph, Ontario. Michael Sona, the only person accused by prosecutors of carrying out the illegall robocalls in Guelph to redirect people to the “Old Quebec St. Mall”, faces jail and fines. However, he could not have carried out this crime by himself, calling into question the accuracy of the investigation by Al Mathews.
The NSA had claimed that Ed Snowden hadn’t contacted superiors with concerns about their illegal activity. They released an email attempting to discredit his claim that he had raised concerns, and the email proves Snowden was telling the truth.
The Washington Post has published a response from Snowden to NSA’s release of this email. He says, “Today’s strangely tailored and incomplete leak only shows the NSA feels it has something to hide,” and, “I’m glad they’ve shown they have access to records they claimed just a few months ago did not exist, and I hope we’ll see the rest of (Read more…)
The Harper Conservative party promised a Made in Canada plan to address climate change, in response to backing out of Kyoto. That plan never came, which was no surprise to people paying attention to their true agenda of high pollution at the expense of our health and climate.
What led the Commish Cote to ignore obvious evidence and conclusions. Hopefully it’s not a factor of being appointed by Stephen Harper, but any reason still leaves Canadians with an unsolved crime. The Commish failed to carry out his duty to protect Canadian elections from crime.
On the outside, The Condemned is what you would expect of a documentary about a prison: bad food, unsympathetic guards, tearful family reunions, letters from Lonely Hearts, and a lot of tattoos. But Federal Penal Colony 56, buried deep in the wilderness of Russia, contains so much more.
A prison exclusively for murderers with 260 men inside, the film provides a unique look at a world most of us should hope to never know. The Condemned spares no punches in exposing the dark and troubled soul of this place and its inhabitants.
