It all started with a simple tweet
. Nova Scotia commentator Parker Donham wanted to show his support of a local candidate by taking a picture of his marked ballot and posting it to his Twitter followers. Elections Nova Scotia
took a dim view of this violation of the Elections Act, and tweeted a reply: "please be advised that your action is being referred to the RCMP for investigation"
, stating it is illegal to bring a recording or communication device into the polling station. Donham defends his action
, and much controversy ensues
.And yes, this has become the biggest controversy of a rather boring and disappointing election, where it appears we'll vote out a one-term government for the first time in about 130 years.
