They can’t help themselves
Just like their GOP counterparts the Conservative Party is doing its best to restrict democracy and make it easier to cheat.
Here are the things that piss me off the most about their new Fair Elections Act.
First, just like the GOP, they are trying to prevent voting by those unlikely to vote Conservative: natives, students and such.
Second, they’re raising the amount that can be donated by an individual. Worse, they are changing the law so that soliciting past donors for funds no longer counts as an election expense.
Worst of all, they are making it more difficult to investigate possible election fraud. The stupidest change they’re making is that Elections Canada now has to tell a party or candidate they are being investigated and why before starting the investigation! I’m sure the police would love having to tell a drug lord or mob boss they are being investigated and what for before they can start investigating.
The evilest thing the Conservatives are doing is transferring the enforcement arm of Elections Canada from Elections Canada to the Justice Department. What this means that rather than be controlled by Parliament, that is the people of Canada, it will now be controlled by whatever party is running the country, which is currently the Conservative Party.
Damn, I simply can’t stand that these asshole aristocrats run my country.
