Harper privately met Brampton sign vandals, photos show

Prime Minister Stephen Harper privately met the men caught on tape vandalizing Liberal and NDP signs while putting up signs for the Conservative candidate, photographs show.

The men, who have been identified as Balkar Jhutti and Harvinder Rai of Brampton, Ontario, privately met Harper at the premises of a company owned by Jhutti, a Conservative donor.

Harper had been visiting the Brampton Centre riding to support Conservative incumbent Bal Gosal, the candidate whose signs the vandals were putting up while tearing down the opponents’ ones.

“I don’t care,” one of the vandals is heard saying after being caught in the act and confronted by a Liberal volunteer. “I’m doing my job”.

“I am shocked and disappointed that the Conservative Campaign has descended to over the top attacks and vandalizing opponents’ signs,” the riding’s Liberal candidate Ramesh Sangha said. “There is no place for these types of actions in our community.”

Sangha’s team reported the incident to the local police and sent a letter of complaint Elections Canada for further investigation.

“This is not how democracy works in Canada and certainly not in Brampton,” Sangha added. “I am calling on Bal Gosal to immediately apologize for and cease these dirty election tactics.”

“Under Stephen Harper, Conservatives have broken election rules in every election,” Sangha add. “The Liberal team remains focused on bringing positive change to the people of Brampton Centre. We will not be discouraged by dishonest Conservative election tactics.”

“It’s unfortunate that after such a long campaign, this is what we have come to,” NDP candidate Rosemary Keenan said. “Our team of volunteers have worked extremely hard over the past couple months and to see this happen is disgraceful.”

“We need to start electing representatives that would rather put time into making our communities better than resorting to tactics like this,” Keenan added. “People in Brampton are fed up with this kind of politics and deserve somebody who’s actually interested in their concerns, rather than doing whatever it takes to get elected.”

Neither the Conservative Party of Canada nor Bal Gosal has responded to the incident.

    This numbs me with rage. How can this candidate continue to represent his Brampton district. He must resign immediately and this story, along with the nefarious details of Harper’s involvement, broadcast as widely and loudly as possible. Shameful! Absolutely shameful! But then, that’s what most of us have come to expect from this pathological Prime Minister, unworthy of ANY public office.

      Wow. You need to calm down. If you think for a second that PM Harper had anything to do with this is outrageous. This type of thing is happening everywhere on a regular basis and primarily to CPC signs. It has been well documented. So pot, this is the kettle…

          What do you mean, “has ties to these two?” They work on the campaign of a candidate running for his party; I imagine he’d never heard of them before and would never have given them a second thought after.

            Their boss was a Conservative supporter financially and by the looks of it it seems safe to assume that Harper is aware of those who pay into his campaign. Why else would he be (secretly) meeting with them…. and refusing to comment about it….shady deals!

The guy on camera commiting the act is the same guy Harper met and who has been along time Conservative donor.

            I can only think anonymous you are so stupid that that tactic would fool you so you think it will fool others. It is only those who are that stupid who are still voting for Harper, and other conservatives.

        If you think for a minute that Harper didn’t have anything to do with it, think again. He may not have been aware of this incident, but he certainly encourages election tampering, and has done a fair share of his own. He has tried to undermine Elections Canada, which was created to ensure fair elections that were not influenced by any one party, with what he calls the Fair Elections Act, which is anything but fair. He has tried to make it more difficult for people to vote by changing the rules so that Voter Identification Cards are no longer accepted as ID. And there are a lot of people who believe he “Gerrymanders” election lines in order to gain an advantage for Conservative candidates (exactly the kind of thing Elections Canada is meant to prevent). I have not personally seen hard proof of this, but I was surprised to find that I now live in a completely new riding that was just created by dividing one Conservative held riding into two. Highly suspicious if you ask me.

      • Rod Nolan says:

        I respectfully disagree, Anonymous. This type of response to this type of behaviour is 100% justified. In fact, I fully support Terry Stone’s call for Bal Gosal’s resignation. I’ve said it before on other channels and I’ll say it again here. This candidate is not fit to represent me or anyone else.

      Sadly, sign vandalism happens in all areas to some degree and it crosses all party lines. I was out canvassing with a couple young men who had put out a lot of Conservative signs. They were so disappointed to see that many had been removed. Signs that my husband had put out were vandalized when someone put stop sign stickers on them. Worse still were the idiots that put HARPER stickers on actual roadside stop signs in our area.
      I think if candidates had to step down because of sign vandalism, there wouldn’t be enough left to hold an election. Sad but true nonetheless.

        It’s not. It’s based on the fair democratic process and to protect that process, we have laws in place. One of which was broken when those people, who were obviously affiliated with this conservative candidate and allegedly the PM too from the looks of this article, destroyed the other candidate’s signs. Now, if the Conservative candidate that these men were working for instructed them as part of their job to purposefully break one of the laws in place that protect the democratic process, that would be undemocratic.

    I am not a Conservative supporter and this act is one of undisciplined supporters. True supporters of a party would not do this. It is likely this will help the other parties win against Gosal. But let’s have common sense on the other side too. This item is headlined Harper meets “privately”… I guess to me 4 guys in suits getting off a bus and 4 guys in working clothes is not very private ESP when a 9th person at least is taking the photo. This looks like a campaign stop, a swing by to thank a supporter – maybe use the toilet. The implication in the title is that Harper at the very least supported these actions if not recommended them. I can’t stand the man but I’m sure the leader of a major party has enough sense to not encourage vandalizing competitor’s signs. And let’s say he did – do you think the yahoos caught would simply be saying “I don’t care”? They be bragging that the PM told them to do it. Even Harper would denounce this childish behaviour. But it won’t save him from losing this election.

    Of course they haven’t; that’s been their modus operandi since they’ve been in government and during this election (e.g., Con candidates nowhere to be seen at numerous all-canidate meetings across the country). It’s like they figure if they don’t talk about it, it will go away. Bunch of tools.

      Ah..the culprits say they were just doing their jobs….aka just following orders. Where have we heard that defense before? Oh ya..Nurmberg, Germany, circa 1945/46.

      Did you just compare kicking over signs to the actions of Hitler and murdering millions. Shutup. Their job was putting up signs kicking some down is their own decision.

    Its tactics like this that make voting a lot easier! My father was running for MPP and the stuff I saw other runners and their teams doing was disgusting! Trying to pay him off, threating, taking down the signs etc…
    This should NOT be allowed and is NOT allowed in Canada! I hope something comes out of this to teach them all a lesson!

    No question here. The person who heads this team must withdraw. Ultimately he is responsible foe the actions of his supporters. It is an illegal action.There is evidence, and the law clearly states the rule. His team must face court and pay the price. This is how things used to be done in Canada.

    OH MY GOSH!!! The fact there are people who believe the P.M. knew or encouraged this only means one thing. Lawn darts, chemistry and wood burning kits need to be brought back so we can let the idiots weed themselves out. This arguement holds as much water as saying he is Rob Fords crack dealer. After all do we really know what was exchanged in their photograghed handshake. A bunch of lemmings following an assumption and running with it.

    Too many people are uninformed and believe all they read in the newspapers and then spread the gossip. Now many of the newspapers have endorsed the Conservatives – what a change of heart. Do your homework people and find out the truth! And for those who think the boss is responsible for what his people do – what nonsense. We should all be accountable for ourselves and the world would be a better place, instead of always finding somebody else to blame.

    They are owner of hunter transport that is funded by Bal Gosal money they are just front face but in reality this company owned by Bal Gosal. This is way to save your face. They just work for Bal Gosal

      You win the dumbest speculation award of the century. As someone who knows the two gentlemen kicking signs, they worked their ass off building that company from scratch. They did something stupid kicking down signs. That’s it. Stop turning it into anything more. It’s not a conspiracy. Their actions were their own and a result of the passion they have for conservatives party. It’s sad to see liberals and ndp spin it off into anything more. Every party has its radicals and you can’t claim they are under direct influence from the top.

    please also think where this money is coming from? If someone did not pay 200 in Taxes or did not renew plate sticker police cra everyone is after them but no one is asking any question no audit nothing for them. This is insane

  28. Bizzo says:

    The only thing more offensive than their actions is the low level of education and spelling/grammar in the comments left here.

  29. Anom says:

    Yes you are right at this point spelling and grammer is more important than choosing a prime minister.

    Anyone voting for Harper this time around won’t change their mind after reading this article. Hopefully enough people have already decided not to vote for him because of how he’s led Canada for the past 10 years. I think if you haven’t realized by now this man is terrible for our country something like this isn’t going to sway them.

    No use debating whether its fake or true. Or that people in the comments have bad grammar.

    Let’s just chalk this up to being funny or even ironic. Vote to make this guy resign! Vote to save our rights!

    Either way he met with these people and they had been working/volunteering under his campaign sites that were breaking laws specifically about campaigning and signage, The fact that anyone working or volunteering under any of his electoral campaign offices did not know it was illegal and apparently thought it was okay to destroy and deface signs from other political parties iss appalling considering he is currently in power and not an up and coming independent or small scale politician and therefore should be on the forefront of fair elections and political awareness and knowledge.

  33. Emily says:

    This article paints a very biased and incorrect picture. Sure they have kicked the boards down however the liberal team has done the same on Steeles Ave and Kennedy. Unfortunately, the only difference is that it wasn’t “caught on camera”. Also Harper isn’t promoting this nor meeting them in private….that picture is from August and this meeting was arranged where all the employees had a chance to meet and greet. 2 wrongs don’t make a right but at least get your facts straight when publishing an article. Goes to show how blindly we as a society accept everything posted online.

        Sorry, your internet privileges are being taken away. An IQ of over 50 is required. It’s also a video, so you don’t read it.. you watch and listen to it. Furthermore, ever heard of google? That website that became a verb synonymous with figuring shit out for yourself? Yeah, use that.

    Lets see if Elections Canada follows through with the promise to prosecute offenders caught defacing or breaking signs…. Apparently up to a $5000 fine, up to 6 months in jail or both… I suppose time will tell

  38. Sharon Jacksoon says:

    Looks like the Harper Goon Squad has taken over this comment string using the fabulous name of “Anonymous.” Typical Harper tactics. You can say what you like, accuse people of what you want and carry no responsibility whatsoever. Typical of Mr. Harper’s tactics.

      I am all for no longer allowing election signs on residential property. If stores and businesses want to advertise on their property and the party’s are willing to use paid permanent billboard locations and rent spots on transit and bus shelters I am OK that way if volunteers remove signs they can and will be fined and charged

      • Anonymous says:

        The signs are an eyesore anyway….and a totally unnecessary waste of money. The candidate names and parties are on the ballot.

    Yeah, so these pics were taken from a visit in AUGUST. damn sheep will believe anything..

  40. Common Sense says:

    Congratulations, every single one of you are fucking morons. Nothing that a single one of you have posted has any factual basis or value. It is speculation by dumbass, pat-yourself-on-the-back activists like all of you and your complete blindness to your own ignorance and stupidity that make intelligent discussion impossible.

    Everyone who reads this thread should log out. Take about 5 seconds to really metabolize the possibility that no one gives a shit about your uninformed outrage.

    Why am I posting this? I’m tired of reading the diatribes of idiots. It’s that simple.

  41. John Stacey says:

    If I vandalized a Liberal sign, I would not expect Harper to know.
    My PC sign has been vandalized and I would not expect Trudeau to know.
    Harper would never be involved in such local hi-jinx, there is just too much and he is not the type or has the time. The picture was taken of Harper meeting some PC supporters, nothing more. It is always easy to lie by taking things out of context with pictures and statistics. Larger main-stream media would carefully vet this before publishing and in this case would not at all.

    I was their when the gentlemen in thw video were shaking hands with Stephen Harper, it was on August 27th. Well over a month and a half ago. Trying to turn this into a conspiracy reaching the top is pathetic. Harper took pics and left. I have a pic with him on the same day aswell at the same location

      I’m laughing so hard right now. This was not even close to a price meeting the whole entire company was here meeting Stephen Harper. You can see in the background that his campaign bus was there as well if it was such a private meeting why on earth is it so
      Openly held in the yard. I took a picture with Harper that day as well so you guys need to calm down and rethink everything that was written there. Clearly this is written by someone with a biased opinion. CALM DOWN

  44. David Leonard says:

    Wow, I’ve seen things on these comments that literally make me sick. You people call yourself Canadian. I have never seen more hate and anger at one time then when I was in prison. You are animals. If you are going to act like one act like one. The way to solve this problem is to VOTE don’t vote you have NO SAY!!! If you don’t like it grow some balls and do something about it. If your gonna bitch, prepare to act.
