Nimra Amjad, a Pakistani national living in Canada who is involved in the Communist group Antifa, had been charged with two counts of violating the Local Authorities Election Act when she ran as a non-citizen in the 2017 Alberta Municipal Election, securing 17 per cent of the vote in her district.
The Rebel received a tip regarding this story from a viewer, so we went to the Calgary Court Centre to retrieve the documents regarding the Pakistani expat’s participation in a Canadian election. We left with a document confirming that a foreign national was in fact charged with two counts of violating sections 148-4 and section 151 of the Local Authorities Election Act.
Why would someone so brazenly break the law? Amjad told reporters that her “handlers” told her it would be fine.
Who were her handlers? That remains a mystery.
At her sentencing, the judge fined her one thousand dollars, but gave her a pat on the back, congratulating her for participating in politics.
Amjad has gone through the globalist circuit – representing Canada as a foreign national at the UN, the G7, the World Economic Forum, as a panellist at a Public Interest Alberta conference, and even representing Canadian Youth at the G7 summit.
Amjad spoke at what she claims to be “one of the largest UN events in history” representing Canada again, while “coordinating with the delegation” from her motherland.
Confusing the situation more, is that when this Amjad was in the midst of running her campaign, a fake Facebook account was created, made under an incorrect spelling of one of her secret ex-lovers, allegedly sent her direct messages involving hateful comments. The mainstream media ate that up as you would expect, posting story after story about it. Amjad even brought camera crews into her home.
However, when the Calgary Police’s Hate Crimes Unit got involved, Amjad became silent, avoiding the police, and wouldn’t provide a statement.
The police dismissed that case after Amjad changed her story, and the facts multiple times in interviews with CBC’s Megan Grant.
After the dismissal of the case, Amjad appealed to the state broadcaster, CBC to strike from the public record the stories related to the alleged hate crime. Why would she do that? Why would she not talk to the police? If someone threatened your life, wouldn’t you want them brought to justice?
As would be expected in this day and age, it did not matter what the truth was, the ex-boyfriend was fired from his job- it didn’t matter if he was involved or not, he was just blindsided.
Amjad has been a campaign supporter of Druh Farrell, Rachel Notley, and appears to be friends with Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi’s advisor: Brian Singh. This makes sense given Singh was a board member with Amjad on the Progress Alberta board of advisors. Could he be Amjad’s handler that told her to run in a Canadian Election even without citizenship? We simply cannot say, as Amjad has not responded to The Rebel.
We sent Amjad a list of questions, she directed us to her lawyer without telling us who that is, and we haven’t heard a peep since. We explicitly asked her if she has ever voted in a Canadian election, yet no response. If she was innocent, wouldn’t she volunteer that information?
She certainly seems to know what she is doing, so if she was a political science nerd, she would know that if she has voted in a Canadian election as a foreign national, she would be in violation of Section 148-3 of the Local Authorities Election Act and could carry a prison sentence of up to 6 months, and a fine of ten thousand dollars.
The problem is, she will not come clean and answer our questions – so we are going to have to do the heavy lifting. We will be submitting a Freedom of Information request to the Calgary Elections authority to gain access to the voters list and determine if she did or did not vote for herself.
If someone has the gall to run in an election illegally, you’d think they would vote for themselves too, right? She had a citizenship application pending, perhaps she thought if it came through before election day she would be in the clear?
There is just no way of knowing; we have contacted the office of Press Progress, their staff, Amjad herself, her opponents in the election, and we just can’t get a straight answer.
Since Amjad’s illegal bid for elected office, and even after charged with two counts of breaking electoral law, Amjad has been granted Canadian Citizenship by the Feds.
