Threat to Demcracy_Cheat sheet or not, check out image and the Vancouver Charter 55

Congratulate Vision's big win, yet many do not understand why Vision did not trust its ability to win with honesty but allianced with Jenny Kwan, an expereinced NDP politican MLA at Vancouver Mount Pleasant did this: From Nov 17th to 19th, it's volunteer teams swept many senior social housings by introducing themselves from the government, presented the almost exact ballot sheet as from the government and commanded seniors to vote like the sample from the government. Particularly five names circled with red mark, the rest of the candidates from other parties or independant runners' name were digitally edited magically faded to the background. Certainly, take a look at the election result, those five got massive votes. Wow! Cheat sheet or not? If it is, then this fatal mistake will bring this million dollar's Campaign and the star MLA of NPA Jenny Kwan to its knee in front of the Justice and Voters Trust. Check out the image of the cheat sheet and VANCOUVER CHARTER 55 Division 17 Election Offense descriptions.  You be the judge!
