Report finds that ‘poorly executed’ plan denies First Nations voters right to vote
Elections Canada is apologizing to voters in three First Nation communities in Ontario after breakdowns in communication led to them being denied their right to vote in the last election.
An inquiry by the elections body found that fly-in communities in the riding of Kenora had their local polling stations cancelled ahead of election day.
But many voters were not told about the changes and tried to vote unsuccessfully on election day.
