ANOTHER reporter votes in niqab -- and "this time it's worse"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

As our reporter David Menzies proved last week -- watch HERE -- anyone can vote in the Canadian election while wearing a Muslim face-mask called a niqab. But over the weekend, it got worse.

Another reporter, Ilana Shneider with CIJNews.com, put on a niqab and voted in the advance poll in Willowdale, Ontario.

As you can see, at no time did Shneider ever remove her face mask.

But worse, unlike Menzies, at no time was she even asked to swear that it was really her, or show a second piece of ID.

This is nuts.

It’s part political correctness, part sharia law.

Just this month, the Muslim country of Egypt banned women from voting if they’re wearing a niqab.

But in Canada, we’ve normalized it — and destroyed the integrity of our elections.

This is an outrage. Please SHARE this video with your friends.

What is wrong with this picture? I just went to vote and asked them if I forgot my ID could I still vote and just swear I am who I am and they told me if I had no ID “I COULD NOT VOTE”. Canadian born white woman.

Funny thing is that a friend of mine recently went in to vote with driver’s licence and voter card but was denied. His driver’s licence had his legal description address ( section, township and range) but no box # as was recorded by EC. Photo ID- on provincial driver’s licence, EC issued voter’s card but the EC person would not connect the dots. If he had worn a niqab it would all have been irrelevant. He would only make a pinkie promise at most and he would have been good to go.

How has it destroyed the integrity of our elections?

Harper is a greater threat to Canadian democracy than ISIS.

Okay people, got an answer from Elections Canada :
“Election advertising and election signs cannot be placed inside or on the exterior surface or on the grounds of any building used as a polling station.

All types of advertising that support or oppose a candidate, or a political party listed on the ballot under the name of a candidate, are prohibited inside or on the exterior surface of any building used as a polling station.

All persons in a polling station are prohibited from wearing or displaying any label or device indicating support of any candidate or political party. Prohibited items include emblems, ensigns, badges, labels, ribbons, flags, banners and cards."

So there it is! The guy in “Team Trudeau” T-Shirt was breaking the law with the Liberal Party emblems and labels on his shirt.

Sounds scary, Shawn. And has there been a lot of that? See, the only electoral malpractice that I’m aware resulted in the arrest and conviction of Conservative Dean Del Mastro. That actually happened. All these other little fantasies haven’t.

shawn-all you need is proof address and CC

All these foreigners would have to do is steal two pieces of ID from 20 million citizens who are registered to vote, then masquerade as them as they vote in the polling station each person is registered with, providing they haven’t already voted. I’m not even going to bother casting my vote for Harper, as some Muslim has probably already stolen my vote.
commented 2015-10-14 15:26:14 -0400
After those antics I wonder if they should be called ‘reporters’ at all. Wearing a fancy get-up to make a point seems a bit unprofessional, but filming in a polling station and breaking the law is reprehensible.

i bet i can wear a scarf and vote what is ezra levant going to say about that?
commented 2015-10-14 12:24:07 -0400
Danielle, you are are questioning the date that David voted as it was not on an advance polling day. I believe you can vote at any Elections Canada Office at any time they are open.
commented 2015-10-14 11:42:07 -0400
“I asked if all this was necessarily. he said elections Canada had warned them to expect massive voter fraud in this election.”
Really? I thought Dean Del Mastro had been convicted. Don’t you think the Conservatives will be a little more circumspect this time around?

“Please note the preferred ID is photo ID.”
Bill, I’m looking at both the Elections Canada website and my voter registration card, and I don’t see anything about “preferred” ID. What document are you referring to?
commented 2015-10-14 10:54:58 -0400
Funny, Harper is the one who has been in power since 2006. Sharia law? Nice try……you’re a low life racist piece of shit, crawl back under your rock or, better yet, go sign up with trump’s campaign in the US, you’d fit right in……

You are entitled to vote in Canada if you are a citizen and live in that riding. That is true for reporters as well as anyone else. What you are not entitled to do is film inside a polling station. Elections Canada should pursue this case.

Jessica P – FYI when I voted in a new riding I had just moved into a few years ago , I went and had my name and new address added to the voter registry in that riding 3 weeks before the election – when I got to the polls that month, I showed photo ID, it had my old address on it so they required I go get proof of residence – when I returned with the required ID, the scrutineer had me sign a legal declaration of identity which was indemnifying me to up to 10 yrs prison if found to be fraudulent ( I assume my info was checked out later to confirm). I asked if all this was necessarily. he said elections Canada had warned them to expect massive voter fraud in this election. I asked why this was any different than any other election – he said because the polling was so close.

Obviously the staff at this polling station did not get that memo.

Jessica Pape commented -" This article sucks.. She does not legally need to show her face, at all, to vote. "

Jessica – I’m reading from the voting instructions sent to me in the mail by elections Canada – They require 1 piece of photo ID OR a credit card in your name and a bill sent to that name at the same address. Please note the preferred ID is photo ID. I think the point was that masked people can vote with fake or stolen or acquired ID from someone else and vote multiple times – face ID (like finger prints) is positive ID.

I know facts, logic, personal integrity and civil responsibility and other grown up stuff “sucks” pumpkin, but some day when you leave Mom’s house these things will matter.

The video also shows a man at the polling station wearing a red “Trudeau 2105” t-shirt which is also not allowed by law. The polling station, by law, should be non-partisan. You can’t even wear a hat or button with a candidates name on it. This polling station needs to be shut down as you can see it is a Liberal stronghold and will let any friend of Justin vote.
commented 2015-10-13 23:49:05 -0400
It is even worse! ANYONE can vote. Illegally, but completely without any checks, a non-citizen can vote. No proof of citizenship needed, and never asked for. All staff can do is ask if you are a citizen and if they receive a positive verbal answer, they must allow the person to vote. Any bets on how often this happens? So now, we see all you need is a piece of paper, a burka, and a motivation and voila! Your vote has been tabulated.
commented 2015-10-13 23:44:13 -0400
How about that Dipshit in the Team Trudeau tee shirt? This is COMPLETELY against the rules. Anyone showing up at our poll in such garb gets asked to leave.
commented 2015-10-13 23:28:35 -0400
Well, if some Bat Sht Crazy, dressed like a Sault Shaker, wants to vote like that, I guess it is OK. I just hope that He/She dose not self destruct and whack out all the civilized voters.

Apologies for the previous link, “amp;” was added after every “&”. I’m not sure how to remedy that.

I just took a look at the voter id rules here: http://www.elections.ca/content2.aspx?section=id&document=index&lang=e
And it seems that you can vote without photo ID.
Just grab 2 pieces of ID.
One of which could be a credit card, the other a credit card statement (which you could print off from your online account after you change your address). You could also steal someone’s wallet and have a decent chance of getting what you’d need to vote (the biggest difficulty would be finding something with the guy’s address on it).
While it’s within the rules, it seems like it’s vulnerable to exploitation.
I think it’s time we move to a photo ID system (even though that wouldn’t be foolproof either).

Kelly Weber : I wasn’t sure either, so I sent Elections Canada a question.

Danielle Godard : Oooh … it’s a conspiracy! Or maybe just the Box ID for his Riding in the 2015 election … doh!

My question is not regarding this video but the other video of David voting. Is it not against the law to show his date of birth and address. Again, look at the date on the voters box. It is clearly identified 09.11.2015. The video was done on September 30, 2015???

For me personally, I don’t give a shit if you wear a (insert clothing article here). You should note however, my problem, and others like me, comes when you wanna deal with me… I don’t deal with those who worship a 6th century pedophile warlord. It’s jus that simple.

My big problem comes not when you wear your whatever, but when you step over into my sphere, telling me I mustn’t eat pork, telling me I mustn’t celebrate Halloween, telling me I mustn’t say “boy”, “girl”, “mother”, “father”, telling me I mustn’t insult “the prophet”.

We are an overly tolerant people, and I guess, I like that to some degree… But don’t you believe it will be possible to overtake us, we just will not have it… Too stern, too well-armed, a military that refuses to disarm us (High River), not gonna tolerate Middle-Eastern governnment in the Mid-West. Wear what you want, vote for your puppets, but I don’t need some broken promises from 1982 to tell when you’re stepping on my Rights.

We got this Harperman song, a piece of crap musically/lyrically… I can play some music, maybe we can write a conservative version, “Cause the sign said long-bearded burqa people, need not apply…”

If he was a representative he can’t wear that shirt. Not sure if you can wear one if you are just a voter.
commented 2015-10-13 21:40:50 -0400
I believe the guy in the team Trudeau shirt is a candidate’s representative.
commented 2015-10-13 21:27:18 -0400
For example, I didn’t show photo ID. So how do they know it was me? They don’t have a clue….. they just take my word, because my ID matches the name at my address. Is this a bad issue? Maybe, but it has NOTHING to do with people who cover their faces, as even us Born – Canadians could easily say we are someone who are aren’t.
