The electoral fraud efforts were part of a systemic Conservative strategy
The Conservatives are trying to claim that a single individual, Michael Sona, was responsible. Sona has worked for Conservative candidates, for a Conservative MP, and for a Minister in the Harper Government. He is not some uniformed, neophyte newbie. He is, however, the sacrifice the Conservatives are more than willing to offer to try and put this illegal action to bed. So Sona was fired last week from his position in Conservative MP Eve Adam’s office.
Harper’s style is one of systematic command and control. No messaging, no strategy, is executed without the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) vetting and approving it. This has become crystal clear during Harper’s tenure. Lawrence Martin’s book Harperland documents this in detail.
Young Sona, having worked for a so many different Harper Conservatives would have had this drilled into him. The fact that it has taken Elections Canada and the RCMP almost a year — with their powers to investigate — to uncover this scheme shows to what great length the Conservatives went to to hide this.
The consequences for this electoral fraud should match the crime: Criminal charges should be laid and by-elections called for every riding where electoral fraud occurred. Any person or firm involved should be barred from working in any election campaign ever again.
Another note rings out.Does DemocracyReally Work ? <a href=”– If every voter prefers alternative X over alternative Y, then the group prefers X over Y.
– If every voter’s preference between X and Y remains unchanged, then the group’s preference between X and Y will also remain unchanged.
– There is no “dictator”; no single voter possesses the power to always determine the group’s preference.
If these criteria are left unsatisfied, it effectively means that democracy—at least in its purest form—cannot work.
