    Another slap in the face for Albertans. Fly a plane in and pick the ballot box up, done. It’s not like there hasn’t been ample time to figure this out.

    Quit and go to vote, if that is what it takes. Your future is more important than your current job. You can make it into the future without your job, but you might not make it into the future without your vote.

    Elections Canada. Totally part of the NWO Globalist Liberal agenda.
    2000 votes that would never be Liberal. So just cancel them. Make it so difficult to vote that they won’t bother. Or mail it in and guess what will happen to those ballots. Shame on election canada.

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.
