,,,,,,,,,,,,,Additional challenges to the Election Act
-1- The Act was passed without support other than Harper controlled MPs and Senators
-2- The Act was not passed by a majority of House members
-3- The Act rather than increasing the power of the Commissioner of ElectionsÂ
removed the position from one of neutrality to being under a Minister

This Act was "about" muzzling the Comm of Elections (accomplished) and expanding dollar amounts of contributions and time periods of contributions.(scores on both)

The Vouching (the photo-ID requirements) were a diversion.

NB the photo-ID stuff may not be a bad idea, since the voters lists are so out-of-date, since they stopped door-to-door enumeration each election.

Everyone fell for the Diversions ... the real "meat" slid through
