Etobicoke Centre Election

The Best Way to End Election Scandals

In the almost evenly divided Supreme Court decision on the Etobicoke Centre election case four out of seven judges decided that even though information about some voters was missing, the burden of voter's verification should not be placed on the voter. Suppressing opponents' voters is much easier than trying to convince Canadians why they should vote for you. In fact, it encourages campaign strategists to avoid serious debates and concentrate on demonizing opponents, misleading voters and undermining confidence in our institutions. One effective way to prevent against cynical gamesmanship is to implement mandatory voting.

What Elections Are REALLY About, Mr. Goldenberg

Elections are about the choosing representatives to govern in our stead. They are about policy and the future of the country. They are about Canada's place in the world, how to prepare our children for the future, how to maintain the richness and beauty and wealth of our nation for them as well as ourselves.
