        *************************************************************************
        It has become increasingly clear that there was a vast effort to suppress the vote in the May 2011 elections.

        Hoax phone calls have been reported in 52 ridings to date. Some were robo-calls and some were live calls from a call centres hired by the Conservative Party.

        Some of these calls informed voters that due to potential crowding their polling place was being changed.

        Some of them called Jewish voters on the Sabbath or very early in the morning and said they were from the Liberal Party, angering and upsetting voters.

        Misdirection, lies, and misrepresentation were used to suppress or influence the vote, undermining the very foundation of democracy - free elections.

        Conservative Party campaign worker Michael Sona has already resigned from his post and gone into hiding and the Harper government is trying to pass this off as the actions of one rogue campaign worker.

        Investigations have shown that the calls are directly linked to a company closely associated with the Conservative's campaign.

        CANADIANS WILL NOT TOLERATE SUCH EGREGIOUS VIOLATIONS OF OUR DEMOCRACY.
