Locals highlight Robocall at rally

About a dozen concerned citizens gathered outside Nelson City Hall at noon Wednesday to bring attention to the Robocall scandal.

About a dozen concerned citizens gathered outside city hall at noon Wednesday to bring attention to the Robocall scandal.

Calling for a “new election now,” the small group is concerned about damage done to democracy.

The Robocall case is being heard in Federal Court this week with the outcomes of the last federal election in six closely contested ridings being challenged.

The Nelson Chapter of the Council of Canadians says fraudulent calls or similar election schemes are of great concern and people in this region should pay attention.

“It could happen in Nelson too,” says Pegasis McGauley, local spokesperson. “This is against the very essence of democracy and that affects us all.”
