Court Challenge to Proceed

An official associated with the Federal Court has given the go ahead to a legal action launched by seven Canadian voters with the support of the Council of Canadians challenging the validity of the results in seven ridings in the May 2011 federal election due to alleged voter fraud and manipulation tied to the Robocalls scandal. 

In its application to dismiss the suit, the Conservative Party of Canada had argued that the action was frivolous and vexatious. But the court official disagreed and said the issue at stake ie. the legitimacy of Canada’s democratic process; was sufficiently important that the case deserved to be heard on its merits in Federal Court.

Here’s the CBC report.

  1. “the issue at stake ie. the legitimacy of Canada’s democratic process; was sufficiently important that the case deserved to be heard on its merits in Federal Court.”

    Imagine that. Well, it’s not hard to imagine, if you try.
    What is mystifying though, is why it takes months for the damned Federal Court to hear a case upon which the legitimacy of our very government rests. In the meantime, they ominibus bill us into oblivion.

  2. Will this get through the court system including possible appeals in time before the next federal election? This will be dragged out for the next few years.
