Apparently there is an attempt to suppress the advanced polling vote on the east side by using tactics familiar to everyone who follows Republican politics south of the border.
According to the City’s own website, there are no advance polling stations in the neighbourhoods of DTES, Strathcona, Grandview-Woodland and Mount Pleasant. How can that be?
Why are so many Vancouver citizens on the eastside forced to travel by bus or walk long distances simply to exercise their constitutional franchise when easy access is available on the west side, downtown and in south Vancouver? Are there no suitable buildings available on our side of the City, or is there another more invidious reason?
There are tens of thousands of eligible voters being slapped in the face by this omission. They have four weeks to fix this. I bet they don’t.
