Alas, Canada… we’re not any closer to knowing if Pierre Poutine, aka Pierre Jones, is — or isn’t — Andrew Prescott.

What of the 1,394 complaints alleging specific occurrences in 234 of Canada’s 308 federal ridings?

Politics and its Discontents: PROOF of Tory Election Fraud

Today I received an email from The Council of Canadians which includes a link to a sworn affidavit by Annette Desagne, a former employee of Responsive Marketing Group, attesting to election fraud through the misdirection of voters to the wrong polling stations.
