RCMP say no evidence to support Richmond, B.C., vote buying allegations


Richmond RCMP announced an investigation last Friday after the force received complaints about a Richmond-based group calling itself the Canada Wenzhou Friendship Society. The complaints from Richmond, Vancouver and Burnaby followed allegations that the group posted on a Chinese-language social media app that it would provide voters with a $20 “transportation fee” if they went to the polls. The WeChat post also encouraged its members to vote for some specific mayoral and council candidates.
