NEWS: Council of Canadians launches ‘election fraud’ hotline in advance of by-elections

CBC reports, “The Council of Canadians has started a telephone hotline so voters in three federal ridings where byelections are currently underway — Durham (Ont.), Calgary Centre and Victoria — can report suspicious phone messages or live calls. The byelection vote in those ridings is Monday. …Suspicious activities should also be reported to Elections Canada, the group says, but ‘reports to Elections Canada are private, leaving the public in the dark about the nature or extent of any complaints,’ the group wrote in a press release Tuesday.”

The Winnipeg Free Press also notes, “The Council of Canadians has started a hotline so voters in three federal ridings where byelections are to be held Monday — Durham (Ont.), Calgary Centre and Victoria — can report suspicious phone messages or live calls.”
