The mean-spirited, self-destructive Tories.
Or so that's how they're so easily depicted. And have only themselves to blame.
The Toronto Star reports:
Elections Canada rejects Tory bid to quash student votes
THORNHILL—All party leaders are urging voters — especially young voters — to turn out in droves to cast a ballot on May 2.
But only one party appears to have an interest in driving down the participation of 18-to-24-year-olds in this campaign, says an expert on youth voting patterns. And now the Conservative Party is facing an allegation of election tampering after trying to have 700 votes cast by students earlier this week at the University of Guelph declared null and void.
The Tories say that the advance voting station — an initiative specifically designed to increase young voters’ participation in this campaign — was not authorized by Elections Canada and was littered with opposition party campaign material. The Liberals say officials with Guelph Conservative candidate Marty Burke illegally filmed voters and then tried to snatch away the ballot box, a great big election no-no.
