New Affidavit of Robocaller in Canada’s Election -Rigged Voting Locations
An affidavit filed in Canada’s Federal Court by a person hired by the Conservative Party to conduct Robocalls indicates there was election fraud in Canada’s National Election according to her affidavit statement.
This affidavit confirms the worst of the scandal in that the Conservative Party hired callers to direct voters to the wrong polling locations which affected the election outcome in favor of the Conservatives and put Steven Harper as the winner.
New Robocall Testimony Sent to Elections Canada on Voter Fraud:
Published April 19, 2012 in The Toronto Star an employee, Annette Desgagne who worked at Response Marketing Group which was a Call Center that was used by the Conservative Party has come forth. In her affidavit she describes startling revelations about the days leading up to the May 2, national election.
Annette Desgagne said in her statement: You can read the whole statement here:
“She was a former employee of Responsive Marketing Group where she worked as a telephone caller for Thunder Bay calling center of RMG prior to the federal election in May 2011.
“In 2011 she was asked by RMG to work on the federal election calling on behalf of the Conservative Party of Canada”.
She proceeds to describe how the calls were live calls made to voters using a computer, an automatic dialing system and once connected would read from a script she was given.
She states there were approximately 30 to 40 callers in her call center doing the same tasks as she was asked to perform in Thunder Bay. The call room was also monitored by a supervisor who was equipped with a headset to monitor all the calls.
It was her understanding that RMG operated other call centers in Canada and their hours of operation were: 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., seven days a week with 9- to 6 p.m., on Sundays. These call centers were operation across the country for three days or more before the election leading up to Election Day.
Annette Desgagne was to introduce herself to the listener, and state she was calling on behalf of the Conservative candidate for that riding, for the Conservative Party of Canada. She would attempt to ask if the voter was going to vote Conservative and try to identify the voters party preferences. She would then ask for their vote, ask if they could put a sign on the front lawn of the voter, etc. If the voter identified themselves as a Liberal or NDP she would not ask further questions.
About 3 days before the election the script was changed and she was asked to use a new protocol of logging into the system then logging back out.
At this time she was to read that the voting locations or the location of the polling stations were changed. The new script did not mention the Conservative Party at all,
but the NEW SCRIPT “did identify new information from Elections Canada.”
The voter had to “assume the call was really Elections Canada” although that was not stated in the script technically it was implied.
She was then asked if the voter had their Voter ID card handy and then gave them a different address for the polling or voting station.
Miss Desgange then gave a different address for the polling station that was on her computer monitor and these were identified to her by RMG as “Change of Address Calls”.
She became concerned about the calls and the voters she spoke to across Canada questioned her about the change of address of the polling stations. She said one woman in Winnipeg told her the new location was over 1 hour away from her home.
The woman said that Desgagne was wrong and she gave the woman a phone number to call if they had further questions. The lady said she had called that number but it was not a correct number.
Another conversation Desgagne recalled was a woman living in a seniors home, and again the voter said Desgagne was wrong since she always voted in the lobby of her seniors home. (this is verified as true since seniors homes are set up with polling stations to make it easier on the elderly to vote).
Most listeners she said did not question her and simply wrote down the “new” location on where to vote.
Desgagne also said that other caller employees of RMG were also concerned that they were giving out the wrong information, and during their breaks they were discussing the matter.
Annette Desgagne also advised her supervisor who chatted with two other supervisors and they said: “Just stick to the scripts”. She then told her Supervisor “I think we are sending people to the wrong places?” Their concerns were ignored and they kept the calls going on changes to voting locations for Elections Canada.
Canadians want independent Investigation- and have been calling for one for months
Deagagne also went on to say she overheard other callers using the phrase “I am calling from Elections Canada”. She recalled making calls to Winnipeg and Nippissing-Timiskaming about changes of address for the voting stations. She said she talked to many people all over Canada during the three days leading up to the election from her new script.
She also recalled that she heard “news on her radio after work” that there were complaints about Robocalls, and she stated
“those are not robocalls. They are live calls”.
On election day she was then directed to say she was calling from the Conservative Party of Canada again, and they were not informing people of the Change of Address of the Polls on Election Day itself.
She was alarmed that she was doing something wrong and she wrote down what she could about the script of the Change of Address Calls and gave that information to the RCMP- Royal Canadian Mounted Police, a national police force in Canada.
Annette Desgagne has also submitted this information to Elections Canada, as well to the undersigned below, she informed everyone she could think of to advise them of the election fraud. The affidavit was given on April 13, 2012 and is now hitting the media.
It takes a tremendous amount of courage for a person to tell the truth under these circumstances, of obvious deception and fraud foisted on Canadian voters.
The Harper Conservative government continues to deny “any” wrong doing instead blaming the other parties as a diversion to the obvious fraud committed by his party to win an election.
The statement was sent to the: Attorney General of Canada, Marc Mayrand (chief Electoral Officer) Dianne James Mallory (Returning Officer for Nipissing – Timiskaming, Jay Apin, Scott Edward Daley, Rona Eckert and Anthony Rota
