Voters can vote without a mask

Post by masen »

In the Deputy Returning Officers guidebook, EC 50300, 2021, page 52, it clearly states "Electors may enter the polling place, register and vote without a mask." Castanet should be taken to task for FALSE NEWS.

Castanet's stance:

https://www.castanet.net/news/Canada/34 ... ons#346129

"Masks are required for everyone who wishes to vote unless they have a medical exemption. Elections Canada says those who refuse to wear a mask for a non-medical reason will be asked to leave the polling place.

“If they have a medical exemption they should tell the poll workers immediately,” Elections Canada said in a statement to Castanet.

“People with medical exemptions will be allowed to vote without a mask unless the owner of the building has made it a condition of the lease that no one will be allowed inside without a mask.”"


The bold part sure is interesting there. What is right? Who is wrong? Again, more inconsistencies.

How does a polling clerk properly identify a person wearing a mask, they need to ask everyone to take off their mask to do it properly.

They didn't ask me to remove mine when I voted early last Sunday.
Don't take my silence to mean I've agreed with you; I easily could've just lost interest in explaining how wrong you are.

As much as the movies would have you believe, it’s not that hard to identify someone wearing a mask in most situations. Any person with remotely normal vision should have been able to tell that Bruce Wayne is Batman.

So what is someone to do if they are an Anti-vaxxer, AND an anti-masker? AND they have two broken legs so they can't mail in their ballot? This is an outrage, an afront on their basic rights!
