Heraldic badges of the Canadian government

A scandal has broken out that has directly affected Green Party of Canada leader Elizabeth May‘s own riding. [See press release.] The governing Conservative Party is being charged with making robocalls and live calls to voters in ridings where the opposition had seats, and misdirecting their voters to false Elections Canada polling stations.

There are live callers coming forward with reports to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police on this being done. Elections Canada is investigating, and there are calls for a public inquiry.
