Statement by Liberal Leader Bob Rae on the Ontario Superior Court of Justice Decision on the Election Results in Etobicoke Centre

Posted on May 18, 2012

VANCOUVER— Liberal Leader Bob Rae made the following statement today on the Ontario Superior Court of Justice decision to declare the 2011 election results in Etobicoke Centre null and void:

“I was pleased with the Ontario Superior Court’s decision to declare the 2011 election results in Etobicoke Centre null and void. Liberal Member of Parliament Borys Wrzesnewskyj lost his seat by 26 votes and had outlined numerous irregularities that were, in the end, found by Justice Lederer to have undermined the results.

It has become clear to many Canadians that our democracy was tested and perhaps undermined during the last election. Reports and allegations of election fraud are widespread and there are many cases still under investigation. This has cast serious doubts on the integrity of our electoral system, but we are confident that a by-election in Etobicoke Centre would help greatly in reaffirming the strength of our electoral system and Canada’s democracy.”
