VOTER SUPPRESSION
The Ultimate Disinformation Scheme

 The voter suppression campaign that tainted Canada's 41st General Election was unlike anything the country's electorate had experienced.

 

 Present day disinformation campaigns are the perfect match for bad actors developing highly sophisticated social platforms with the lure of a profitable grift. 

 

  Yet, the formula remains constant; micro target demographics with half-truths, control the message and if caught red handed: gaslight.

 

"  E-Day Canada Chapters" are segments from the the feature length documentary.  

 

   The vignettes below are a forensic breakdown at the long game of voter suppression or disinformation schemes during the Stephen Harper era.

 

   If you wish to screen the entire documentary in one sitting you can do that as well just click on the poster.

THE E-DAY CHAPTERS

PROLOGUE

 

Elizabeth May, Thomas Mulcair, J.P. Kingsley, Michael Harris, Lawrence Martin, Duff Conacher and Steven Shrybman  but a few Canadians in "E-Day Canada" film that outlined the emotional betrayal and criminality of the "robocalls" voter suppression campaign during the 41st General Election.

FREE & FAIR

In 2022 the Ontario Provincial Election saw only 40% of eligible voters cast a ballot. The lowest voter turnout in Canadian history. This trend is decades old and right wing parties encourage Canadians to distrust their country's electoral system.

CANADIAN AUTOCRAT

 

Stephen Harper's rise through the right wing Reform Party proved to be the harbinger for the first right wing Canadian government. Harper, once considered unelectable, as Prime Minister unleashed a brand of absolute power that defined his newly established Conservative Party of Canada.

THE PERFECT STORM

Stephen Harper becomes the first Canadian Prime Minister held in contempt of Parliament. The Harper government falls to a non-confidence vote which triggers the 41st General Election.

THE POLLSTERS

The Conservative Party of Canada's 11th hour rally to secure a majority government caught pollsters and pundits unawares. The Liberal Party was soundly defeated. Yet, Jack Layton NDP's stunning rise to lead as official opposition was correct in the final analysis.

"SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG."

Credible evidence emerges that throughout the 41st General Election and culminating on the May 2, 2011 non-conservative voters were targeted and misinformed by bogus Election Canada robocalls.

THE SOURCE

Like a scene picked from "All The President's Men" Hollywood movie journalists Maher & McGregor, after months of dead ends, are handed a lead:  a "source" within the Election Canada & RCMP robocalls investigation.

A POLITICAL CRIME

When rumours and complaints become fact, outrage sweeps the country as Canadians demand accountability much to the chagrin of the re-elected Harper now with a majority government.

LEGALIZED VOTER SUPPRESSION

Thomas Mulcair, NDP leader of the official opposition, rallies his party and in turn a nation to prevent Minister of State Pierre Poilievre and the CPC from enacting electoral legislation taken straight from the Texas Republican playbook.

THE QUIET ENDING

The Harper government and Elections Canada deliver a report that many consider a whitewash and shuts down the robocalls investigation.
