Alberta: The glass war chest

The Ward 10 scandal in Calgary may yet prove to be the best thing that has ever happened to Alberta taxpayers.

In the 2004 Calgary civic election, individuals tied to the Margot Aftergood campaign conspired to request hundreds of special ballots on behalf of unsuspecting residents of Calgary’s Ward 10. They then illegally voted on these residents behalf, temporarily giving the win to Mrs. Aftergood. This “ballot-box stuffing” was immediately caught by election staff and a provincial inspection team was sent in to determine how this could have happened.
