BIASED: 3 Of Elections Canada’s ‘Non-Partisan’ ‘Influencers’ Made Pro-Trudeau, Anti-Conservative Comments

And they wonder why so many people have doubts about Elections Canada?

Recently, I wrote and Tweeted about why Elections Canada cannot be trusted:

“Considering How Corrupt The System Has Become, We Can’t Trust Elections Canada.”

Some on the far-left criticized my article, yet we now have even more evidence about how right it is.

Elections Canada had planned to put together a video of so-called ‘non-partisan’ ‘influencers,’ to ostensibly encourage youth to vote.

However, it quickly turned out that not all of those ‘influencers’ were non-partisan. And unsurprisingly, they turned out to be biased against the Conservatives and/or biased in favour of the Liberals.

Three of the influencers, Ashley Callingbull, Maayan Ziv, and Lilly Singh all had past problematic statements for supposed ‘non-partisans’:

“The Conservatives quickly pointed to past partisan activity by at least three of the 13, including a 2016 tweet by Ziv about being “in that @JustinTrudeau afterglow” and a September 2015 tweet by Callingbull calling on First Nations to vote out Stephen Harper’s Conservative government.

They also unearthed a 2015 Instagram post in which Singh thanked Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for a gender-balanced cabinet, welcoming refugees, acknowledging abuse to Indigenous Peoples and for “leading with compassion and not creating division or fear. The post was accompanied by the hashtag “#mancrushfriday.”‘

And, as Dean Skoreyko noted on Twitter, there even appears to be a Tweet from one of the influencers comparing Stephen Harper to the most evil leader of all time:

Disgraceful.

Facing a severe backlash, the ‘influencers’ program has been scrapped.

But serious questions still remain.

First of all, why were the influencers paid ahead of time?

The government gave them the money, before deciding to cancel, yet the money is still gone.

And how was this all ‘missed’ in the vetting?

These are Tweets and comments that could have been easily found ahead of time – before our taxpayer dollars were given out.

Of course, we know what is really happening here. Elections Canada tried getting a bunch of pro-Liberal, anti-Conservative people to put together an official video, and simply assumed they wouldn’t get caught.

Then, once they were busted, they were forced to backtrack.

That combination of incompetence and anti-Conservative bias is exactly why so many Canadians no longer trust Elections Canada.

Elections Canada, has two of those poll companies doing a poll on how you feel about them-at taxpayers expense – my son was polled he put he did not trust them at all etc. but we knew that when Harper being the best PM in my life time did not get re elected as he should have been, the election was fixed. LIEberals bought us out with our money for their foreign dictatorship. We do not seem to have any laws left or order or democracy left in Canada that is not owned by the illegal unethical UN radicals. If… Read more »

The Elections Canada person that wrote the cheques must pay back the money. This is blatant vote buying. Typical Liberal. We think they have hit bottom and discover they aren’t even close.

Again; everybody who can, apply to work for Elections Canada on election day, and watch for improprieties at the polls and in the counting process.

Canada is broken and I am afraid there is no way to repair the damage that has been done. Daily observation shows me where we are headed, and down Alice’s rabbit hole is where we are, and it just keeps getting worse. Lies and distortion are normal and lying by omission is now common place with the media. As they say up is down, down is up, black is white, we don’t even know that there are only two sexes, male and female. One’s feelings do not change biology and one’s feelings do not generate revenue to pay for idiotic… Read more »

Just like anyone who points out how and why Trump retains his massive support base is called biased.

Trusting Elections like to find non partisan influencers and approving them is like trusting a forger who says that your picture you just bought is a genuine original worth millions. After all, this the same Elections Canada that gave a slap on the wrist to SNC Lavalin for exceeding the limits on campaign donations and using fraudulent methods to do so.While Dean Del Mastro loses his seat in parliament and gets house arrest for using his own money to support his re election. Also notice the Silence from Elections Canada about the pre writ election period where political parties can’t… Read more »
