RCMP, ELECTIONS COMMISH MUST FIND AND CHARGE THOSE RESPONSIBLE

New Democrats write to Elections Commissioner pledging support for investigation.

OTTAWA – New Democrat MPs Alexandre Boulerice and Charlie Angus have written to the Commissioner of Canada Elections asking for a full investigation into the dirty tricks during the 2011 General Election, now linked to the Conservative Party of Canada.

“Canadians deserve assurance that their democratic institutions will be protected and those that violate the rules are prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” New Democrats write in their letter. “If there is anything Parliament can do to help your investigation, you will have the support of the Official Opposition.”
