We're taking the fight to expose election fraud to the next level – and I urgently need your help.
You've likely heard news from our press conference on Parliament Hill earlier this week where we made a major announcement. The Council of Canadians is now supporting legal actions to annul the election results in seven federal ridings.
These are legal actions brought by several courageous Canadians, regular people like you and I, who are stepping forward with evidence of fraudulent activities they encountered during the 2011 federal election. They are bravely exercising their rights under the Canada Elections Act, which empowers individuals to contest the election results in their riding if there were "irregularities, fraud or corrupt or illegal practices".
Regardless of political stripes, we can all agree that any attempt to deliberately interfere with an individual's fundamental constitutional right to vote cannot be tolerated. And where that right was denied, it must be legally restored.
These fraudulent election activities are a harsh reminder that as Canadians we cannot take the integrity of our democracy for granted. Neither our individual democratic rights nor our collective responsibility to defend them ended on Election Day May 2, 2011. True democracy is a 24-7 pursuit.
Today, I am proud to announce the Council of Canadians has launched the Democracy 24-7 Legal Fund to raise the funds necessary to pursue justice for all voters who were affected. Court challenges can be long and costly, and we need to raise $240,000 now.
I'm asking you and all concerned Canadians across the country who believe there was election fraud to contribute. Your donation of $24 (or as generous as you can be) to the Democracy 24-7 Legal Fund will help to support these 7 legal actions and the Council's work moving forward. Can I count on you?
If you are active on social media, please help spread the word too!
Imagine, if 10,000 Canadians each contribute $24, together we can sustain this fight to expose election fraud and begin to restore the integrity of our Canadian democracy that has been stolen.
I know you agree this is a fight worth fighting. With your gift of only $24 you will be part of groundbreaking actions that may lead to changes on the current political landscape and the way Canadian elections are run and regulated in the future.
We simply can't allow election fraud to go unchallenged. Please give to the Democracy 24-7 Legal Fund today.
The Council of Canadians
