Petition update

Do you think this is a matter of public interest?

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 would rule that your request to access Public Election Records is “frivolous and vexatious”? 

Then the same court would declare you a "vexatious litigant"? 

Is that how the Municipal Elections Act S88(5) 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?
