    TVUH presents "Election Day in Canada - The Rise of Voter Suppression"

    in Politics

    "Election Day in Canada - The Rise of Voter Suppression" opens on the route Stephen Harper walked to work less than 24 hours after the CPC election win on May 2, 2011. He never walks to work but on this day the re-elected Prime Minister of Canada, who 36 days earlier fell on contempt of Parliament, revels in his first "majority" government. In less than 2 weeks Elections Canada investigators will be on the ground in Guelph, Ontario investigating a voter suppression scheme that will result in a national outcry, spark court actions, shake the country's confidence in its electoral system, and government.

    This film examines the history and dramatic rise of voter suppression in Canada beginning in 2006 and how Elections Canada was blindsided from the CPC government's "Accountability Act" to the first record of "robocalls" during the 2008 Federal election. Other red flags in the lead up to 2011 were the 2010 Vaughan byelection, followed by the 41st General Election, the aftermath, Council of Canadians court trials, the Michael Sona trial and the scrapped "robocalls" investigation. RackNine, Matt Meier, claims of ignorance from candidates and the "Fair Elections Act" figures in as the film moves through the timeline and travels from Prince Edward Island to Whitehorse.

    Peter Smoczynski is a Montreal born, trained and working filmmaker; journalist, researcher, field producer, CBC national news, current affairs, sports and short docs; Los Angeles trained and working screen writer. "I’ve cooked meals for my crews, conducted interviews in penthouses and boxcars, and had cabinet ministers slam the door in my face. It really is a crazy profession. I wouldn’t have it any other way."

  • Betrayal of Leadership: Which Elected Officials Need to Be Targeted For Defeat?

    in Women

    This weekend's mass gathering is an opportunity for organizing on a grand scale. Voter registration should be a top priority, with the intention of voting out of office those elected officials who have betrayed the public's trust. Who are they? Have we been keeping track of voting records in City Council, the State Legislature, the Congress, the Senate? Have we been paying attention to decisions by judges and actions of State's Attorneys? Have our civic organizations been diligent in tallying up the numbers of registered voters, unregistered voters, and the numbers of votes needed to elect a candidate? Have community leaders stepped forward to run for office and replace those we no longer want to serve in those capacities? Unless we use this time wisely, the gathering of an estimated two million people will be just another neighborhood rally, and we'll go back home just as powerless as before, with a bit less money than we had. So who do we really need to seriously plan to defeat in the next election?

    Making Common Sense Voter Decisions

    in Podcasting

    Does drama elect candidates who can serve the country? State and Local Governments? Will money choose elected officials? Or will each citizen vote their conscious? The apparent levels of frustration experience due to more attentions paid to Wall Street and their Lobbyist has meant the average citizen for decades has been forgotten.  

    Will Koch Brother money, Trump Celebrity driven campaign, Hillary Clinton becoming first women President, or Bernie Sanders speaking out for the common person make it to the electorial finish line?

    Have any candidates running for the Presidency address issue important to you? Where do they stand on Insured Civil Rights Legislation? Will they support a Bill which protect Insurance Policyholders? Or will they stand silent as Wall Street continues to delay and deny benefits to Insured who've paid premiums to these corporations?

    Join ESTRA today in a discussion on why candidates spend more time on issues of Wall Street than those of Main Street.

    I can see this quisling gafawing at communist controlled cocktail parties. CBS trying to out do the FIX news hit on Trump. They goaded him hoping he would lose his cool. Instead El Trumpo mashed Scott's bananas.  Our hero would have none of it. CBS was using the communist tactic of asking a question and half way through the answer ask another question.  All you could see was the venom dripping from Scott's fangs and the evil look in his eye. I think I saw him dressed as a Nazi officer in the movie Schindler's list. If Scott was Oscar Shindler,  the only name on the list to save would be his. But he did his job for the Communist Broadcasting System or as Mother Theresa called them the  Catholic Bashing System. She really did not say that.  It was me who said that.  I was only playing democrat/rino. 

    Trump looked great and fielded the quisling questions with panache. There is one thing that Trump is not telling the voter. He does not like drug, alcohol and cigarettes. Imagine Trump wins and Carson joins him as surgeon general. What a save America team. Add Ted Cruz as senate majority leader.

    In the house we can go with  whoever Mark Levin picks. Definetley not a Boehner clone like McCarthy. The only McCarthy I trust is Joe who the communists killed and took over the government.

    Trump will put more people to work keeping more of what they earn.  He will pull more Latinos than you think and he will pull more blacks than you think. He will pull all the Americans . He wants a great military, stronger than any military
