Elections Canada Playing Us For Chumps

A few fine bloggers have already pointed this out but I'll link to Alison at Creekside (who, obviously is quoting other sources):
A national investigation into allegations of dirty political calls has been under way for more than a year. Elections Canada had planned to wrap up that investigation by March 31. On Thursday, spokeswoman Diane Benson declined to say whether it is ongoing.

The agency was expected to include information about that investigation in a “compliance and enforcement mechanisms” report to Parliament this spring.

Benson said the agency has decided not to report until after the next election.
“In light of the government’s announcement in the fall that it would introduce comprehensive legislative reform, Elections Canada decided to postpone the general enforcement report until after the next general election,” she said. “This was necessary not only to focus our attention and resources on the announced reform, but also of the difficulty of engaging stakeholders simultaneously on a parallel initiative.”
And another source saying:
An Elections Canada report on “compliance and enforcement mechanisms” that was scheduled for this spring has been postponed until after the 2015 election because of the introduction of the Conservatives’ election bill.

That report had been expected to include information on the national robocalls investigation. On Thursday, a spokesman for the agency would not say when any report on that investigation would be released.
Pardon me for asking a simple question, but isn't Elections Canada the agency that can get more resources for investigations, as necessary? Actually, I've got a lot of questions. Why is it necessary to put off reporting on a massive campaign of election fraud that was almost ready to be shared with the public in order to do some vague "focus" on a new piece of legislation? Do the same people who investigate election fraud also comment on new legislation? Isn't it Parliament's job to examine new legislation? Will Elections Canada have the power and independence to "report" on the 2011 election fraud campaign after this bullshit election reform legislation passes?

Allow me now to offer an opinion: This is just one more instance of Elections Canada playing us all for chumps. This investigation has been bullshit. This is how elite systems fake accountability to the rule of law. And they do this to dissipate popular anger and demands for real accountability. The fix is in ladies and gentlemen. What's worse, it seems very likely that the opposition parties with their bizarre inability to recognize the truth when it's staring them in the face, are either too stupid to help us or they're somehow in on this travesty.

I believe the opposition parties are all in on this scam. I believe Harper is setting up for the NAU.

Big business pushes for the NAU.
May 18/2008

Harper officially endorses the NAU
Oct 3/2008

We have American Police operating in our country, exempt from our laws. Harper encouraging Canadians to shop in the US, even making it easier to bring back more goods. Obamacare in line with Harper's health care which, I am sure will be slashed. Flaherty was to bring our cost of living as the US cost of living.

Harper has also been, sneakily working on the TPP which, is just another corporate give-a-way. This gives big business, a hell of a lot more power.

I think, Harper stinks of the NAU. He will use every dirty tactic in the book, to cheat the next election too. Harper craves power, glory and desperately wants to be seen as an important big shot.

I read, Harper was the one chosen to be the front man, for the NAU. He must have been the most evil monster who doesn't care what he does to humans. Harper is a fascist dictator and a sociopath. Harper loves Harper and that is all he cares about. This is of course, my own opinion.

The last meeting of the 3 Amigo's? Kerry signals advance of the NAU Plan.
