EDay in Canada : Voter Suppression

See June 2016 update above.


October 2015
Canadians will be heading for the polls on October 19th without any clear assurance the last federal election delivered the results they voted for.

Documentary filmmaker Peter Smoczynski completed a 42 day road trip across Canada from Guelph to Whitehorse this past spring, interviewing and filming recipients of the harassment, live and robo calls which took place in 234 out of 308 ridings in the 2011 federal election. 

MPs, party leaders, journalists, scholars, court challenge litigants, and experts on the Fair Elections Act, voter micro-targetting and professional voter suppression techniques imported from the U.S. also lend their voices and expertise to the film.

Come October, Peter plans to have a  pre-election abbreviated version of the feature length film available for special screenings.

But the final doc is still running on fumes here. 
We urgently need your help with post-production and editing expenses to get this doc out into the public eye no matter who wins the coming election.

Producer's overview of the film can be viewed here .

Thank you for your time.
