Machine-free, Canadians swiftly hand-count their 13 million ballots
Look at the article below! Thanks to Robert for sending it in.
While we in the USA are still waiting to find out who the President is 3 weeks after election day, Canadians started their national election counting on the evening of Monday November 27th, 2000 – and finished 4 hours later on the evening of Monday November 27th, 2000.
Please bear in mind that --- even though there were 13 million ballots nationwide --- on average 250 or so easily read PAPER BALLOTS were counted at EACH of 50,000 precincts. The counting was done by about 6 counters at each precinct. A FEW BALLOTS COUNTED BY AN ADEQUATE NUMBER OF COUNTERS.
As can be seen from the article below, there is no need whatsoever for the ABSURD spectacle of 12 people trying to count 480,000 punch card ballots, or whatever the number was down in Palm Beach, Florida.
Of course, the Canadians are trying to get a quick, accurate count, -- while those who have stealthily placed the current voting systems in 99% of the counties in the USA were not concerned with speed or with accuracy – they were only concerned with having a voting system that could be easily rigged from a central location, and would have the feature of taking the ballots out of the sight of the voters where the voter’s ballots could be switched with pre-punched or pre-marked ballots prepared in advance by the Election Thieves.
Please notice also that – unlike the USA where it is OFFICIAL, MANDATORY POLICY of the Election Thieves who set up the system, that the ballots MUST be removed from the peoples’ supervision – in Canada the ballots MUST be discarded if they ever leave the official supervision (eyesight) of the Precinct Workers. Very important. Also, the Canadian official
interviewed says that the main feature of Canadian elections is TRANSPARENCY, as this list learned from Canadian Brent Beleskey, the director of the International Voters Coalition. Transparency means the ballots and counting are ALWAYS done in PUBLIC VIEW. The Election Thieves running the voting systems in the USA – insist on NON-TRANSPARENCY. They insist on removing the entire process into the dark, so that their agents can be protected by POLICE while they warp and steal elections in secret. HOW MUCH MORE OBVIOUS CAN THE CRIMINAL NATURE OF THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR USA ELECTION SYSTEMS BE?
Here is the beginning of the article on the ease of Canadian PAPER BALLOT, HAND COUNTED Elections.
Machine-free, Canadians swiftly hand-count their 13 million ballots

OTTAWA (AP) -- Florida vote canvassers, take note. Within four hours after the last polls closed in Canada's parliamentary election, officials at 50,000 polling stations had hand-counted virtually every one of nearly 13 million paper ballots.
There were glitches, to be sure -- an angry voter seized a ballot box in Nova Scotia and threw it into a polluted lagoon. But overall, Canada's federal elections system, which uses no counting machines, had a smooth Election Night.
>From Newfoundland to Yukon, across the world's second-largest country, roughly 150,000 election workers fanned out Monday to a far-flung network of polling stations. Even in the biggest cities, no one station serves more than 500 registered voters -- most of the officers entrusted with the hand-counting had to handle no more than 300 or 400 ballots.
Pierre Blain, a spokesman for Elections Canada, said the system stresses transparency, with each party entitled to deploy a representative to watch the polling station chief count the ballots.
Any complaints can be registered with national elections officials; recounts are conducted automatically in cases of extremely narrow victory margins.
Though some of Monday's 301 parliamentary races were close, the overall result was clear-cut: Prime Minister Jean Chretien's Liberal Party won its third straight majority government while increasing its seats in the House of Commons from 161 to 173.
Blain, in a telephone interview Tuesday, politely declined to pass judgment on the electoral chaos in Florida, which was compounded by the use of different voting systems in various counties.
"All the democracies must look at their systems themselves," Blain said. "It's not for somebody from another country to look at them."
"The most important thing is that people must vote," he said. "I'm sure the workers in Florida did their best."
The Canadian system, in place for a century, uses traditional paper ballots, to be marked with an "X" beside the name of the preferred parliamentary candidate. There are no hanging chads, no questions about mechanical snafus.
In Nova Scotia, though, there was little that election officials could do when a man ran off with a ballot box and threw it into a
Alexander MacKenzie, who had sought compensation for living near the polluted water, was arrested for the theft, spent Monday night in jail, then was released pending a Dec. 18 court appearance.
The box was recovered with the ballots still legible, but under Canadian law they were discarded because they had been removed from official supervision. The polling station contacted the 125 people who had cast ballots; about 70 returned to vote again.
There were some systematic glitches, as well. At some polling stations, people arrived to find they were not on the list of eligible voters; many were confused even though most were permitted to vote if they had valid identification and spare time to register on the spot.
Perhaps the biggest disappointment for Elections Canada was the meager voter turnout of 63 percent -- the lowest in more than 75 years.
"Everywhere in the world, there seems to be a trend of turnout going down," Blain said. "Our task is simply to make sure there are no impediments for those who want to vote."

The "Ruling Elite", through their five Big TV Networks, AP wire service, and two major papers, the New York Times and Washington Post, are making peaceful change impossible at the ballot box, -- via Vote Fraud, Media Censorship, and Poll Fraud, and the flood of illegal aliens who are becoming registered voters . . . President Kennedy talked about this:
"If you make peaceful change impossible..... you make violent revolution inevitable." President John F Kennedy
Go to www.votefraud.org to hear (or read the text) of the Radio Ads which are now airing over WLW Radio (which reaches into 38 states at night)and other stations -- exposing the easily rigged computerized elections which are about to "elect" the next President, and also exposing the coordinated news and censorship of the 5 Big TV Networks. Thanks to Ken Lowndes for Congress, the radio stations MUST air these ads. They're tough. They're "outrageous" -- and you've never heard anyting like it on TV or Radio.
The three prongs of Big Media election manipulation are: Massive coverage of favored Candidates, and Censorship of all other candidates -- including warped Public Opinion Polls for months before the election; phony exit polls done by joint effort of the Big TV Networks on Election Day, and easily rigged computerized vote counting on election day -- which make the polls and exit polls come true. (On election day, the people are barred from touching or counting their ballots, the election officials are barred from knowing what is in the software program that instructs the computers how to count the votes.)
