‘Judge Overturns Election Result In Etobicoke-Centre:

Defeated Toronto Liberal Borys Wrzesnewskyjhas won his legal case to have election results in Etobicoke-Centre thrown out, opening the way for a byelection in the riding. Wrzesnewskyj lost by 26 votes to Conservative Ted Opitz in last May’s federal election but a judge ruled Friday that the result is null and void due to voting irregularities. Justice Thomas Lederer, who heard arguments from Wresnewskyj’s lawyer that the balloting in Etobicoke-Centre was marred by extensive foul-ups, set aside 79 ballots in his decision. “There are requirements of the process which are fundamental,” Lederer wrote in his decision. “We need to be assured that those who vote are qualified to do so.

Sorry.. just doing my best imitation of a Blogging Tory website, or the Conservative Party caucus, when they heard this.

This is of course, a separate case and separate circumstances from the robo-con investigation that Elections Canada is doing in Guelph and investigating elsewhere in other closely contested ridings. If one of those results gets overturned because of proven election fraud, then the uh.. fun really starts for the CPC.

    Um this & Fred are perfect examples of conbot vitriol and the usual lack of any sense of humour.

    If that’s your interpretation of “vitriol”, perhaps you should look up the meaning of the word.

    If Fred truly was amused he wouldn’t have started with his crotchety schtick.

    While you’re perusing that dictionary, try the word “crotchety” as well. Is English a second language for you, or do you really not recognize bemusement when you see it? I have absolutely no reason to be annoyed by the ‘spin’ given by Scott and a few other Liberal bloggers on this matter, and every reason to be amused by it. Go to the Blogging Tories and see for yourself: no one cares. Sorry.

    Really?
    And yet there is no ranting and raving over at Blogging Tories over this.
    I guess if the facts don’t support your little fantasies you just have to make shit up!

    Oh, wow. Seriously, Scott? That’s your take on this?

    The couple of Conservative bloggers who have even bothered to mention this are anything but bothered by it, since it doesn’t reflect poorly on the Conservative Party AT ALL.

    (several Liberal bloggers, on the other hand, seem to be inexplicably excited by it)

    If anything, this is a clear case of incompetence by Elections Canada which gives the Prime Minister a perfect excuse to finally fire Mark Mayrand if he wishes, a man who is *supposed* to be impartial and non-partisan, but who has been openly hostile to the Conservatives all along. You think we’re bothered by this? Sorry…we’re amused…
