(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Police have made application, and been granted by Justice Renee Pomerance, to seize all the City of Windsor municipal election documents including completed ballots and ballot boxes.
On Thursday, February 26, an injunction was served upon Susan Hirota, of the City’s legal department, and officers with Windsor’s Fraud Investigation Unit executed the warrant. They seized and secured all the documentation at 400 City Hall Square, as well as all electronic files in the possession of the City Clerk’s Office.
Both the fraud investigators and city officials have declined comment.
The Superior Court of Justice order prevents the City from destroying any election materials which was scheduled to commence February 26.
More details as they become available.
