Seems to me an element is attempting to distract from discussions of Canadian Politics.

If you can't rebut discussion, then attack people directly.

Conservatives have been overwhelmed by the response of Canadians to the very idea of voter suppression.

The Conservatives have little experience of being on the receiving end of accusations that are hard to defend against. Made all the harder for them because of ground work laid by the Conservatives themselves.

So what is a supporter to do? Well you can try the talking points of the Government, but those talking points have gone over like a lead ballon.

Then you can talk about natural justice, that being, innocent until proven guilty. However the Conservatives make dividing talking points of guilty to proven innocent as in the Northern Gateway Pipeline discussion or the introduction of C-30.

The Conservative supporters are frustrated when they treated in a manner similar to how the Conservatives treat everyone else. It seems to the supporters they have only one recourse left. The only recourse left is to act as they did when the Conservatives were in opposition. Blame the people in charge. Ooopps! Can't do that, then attack, attack, attack.

Evan Soloman reported on The House this morning that the complaints have expanded to 45 ridings.

It's snowballing!

Anna Maria Tremonte interviewed a candidate who lost by 18 votes in his riding. I can't recall the riding or the party, but his supporters were flooded with calls of getting these robocalls that misdirected them and made it difficult or impossible for them to cast a ballot. I am searching her podcasts for the exact person, but if I were this person I would be calling for a new election.

i said they should be investigated. However, I'm not arguing for argument's sake. The number is completely out of context in that the complaints were solicited. A case in point: the notion of the typical white Roswell alien was unknown until it was presented by Betty and Barney Hill and popularized in a 1975 TV movie, The UFO Incident. Suddenly, UFO investigators were flooded with calls about identical abductions featuring identical aliens. Likewise, once the text and source of a RoboCall has been publicized, it's pretty easy for others to repeat the same evidence, or to imagine it happened to them.

You are simply arguing for arguments sake at this point. Who really cares. One complaint is as important as 10 and should be investigated.

It seems as though you are simply trying to diminishing the serious nature of these complaints/ allegations. Perhaps they have already taken these phenomena into account and have reduced the number from 35,000.

Regardless, someone has been very bad and needs to be dealt with. Lets hope this happens. Hate to live in a country where this is taken as de rigueur.

I believe this was in Etobicoke centre where Ted Opitz won. Heavy polish demographic in western Toronto.
