WILL YOU HELP?
I have a favour to ask of you: the Township has a ten million dollar PLUS budget (their LAWYER LOVES it) Can you please help me with a buck? But even more important, please help with just a signature. Please tell the court, Please tell the council Please tell their LAWYER - this is in the Public Interest.
PLEASE donate ONLY ONE dollar - Your dollar is your vote - that this IS IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST.
This is NOT about money.SHORT story.
The Township of South Glengarry, denied requests for access to Election Records as “frivolous and vexatious”.
The Municipal Elections Act states that denial of access by a Clerk/Deputy Clerk is an “offence”, and/or “Neglect of Duty” and may constitute a “Corrupt Practice”.
Do you think a court should rule that your request to access Public Election Records is “frivolous and vexatious”?
Then the same court should declare you a "vexatious litigant"?
Is that how the Ontario Municipal Elections Act should work?
This is in court now. The Township has virtually unlimited resources, and is spending tens of thousands of dollars - rather than permit a taxpayer to spend an hour inspecting Public Election Records.
The Township's lawyer: It is respectfully submitted that this proceeding is not a proceeding about an expression made by a person that relates to a matter of public interest.
Do you think this is a matter of public interest?But even more important help with just a signature. Please tell the court, Please tell the council Please tell their LAWYER - this is in the Public Interest.
