SIDNEY — Preview a special documentary work-in-progress and participate in a discussion forum on electoral fraud in Canada next Wednesday (Jan. 28) at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney.

Peter Smoczynski, an award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker, will be previewing his film “Election Day in Canada: When Voter Suppression Comes Calling,” which examines the rise of voter suppression in Canada during the 2011 federal election, the aftermath to the present day Fair Elections Act.

The Mary Winspear Centre will webcast Smoczynski’s presentation and film clips, which will be followed by a local post-screening discussion. Elizabeth May, Saanich-Gulf Islands MP and leader of the Green Party, will participate online via Twitter: follow hashtag #ElectionFraud.
