Will Canada’s real grassroots please stand up?

After the 2011 election, Elections Canada reviewed their operations. In a country as large as Canada, with thousands of voting locations and tens of thousands of temporary elections staff, there were going to be some wrinkles. But, according to their internal audit, “there was no conduct reported that would bring into question the integrity of the election result overall or the result in a particular riding.”

But left-wing extremists in Canada just couldn’t believe that the man they hated with a burning passion – the evil Stephen Harper – had won a majority government.

How could someone so illegitimate have actually moved up 2% since the previous election?
