etobicoke centre recount

As the lawyers who represented Borys Wrzesnewskyj in his contested election application, the four to three Supreme Court of Canada decision to uphold the election result in Etobicoke Centre was, of course, disappointing. Hopefully the decision of the Supreme Court will lead to real and meaningful electoral reform which will reduce or eliminate the issues that led to this application. While the majority decision acknowledges that "imperfection" and "uncertainty" are a part of the electoral process, Elections Canada should always strive to eliminate them.
