That's been done in the US as well. I don't think anything criminal ever came of it.

I think it's kind of funny, and I'll be disappointed if the guy gets charged with mischief or something. Besides, it's not like anyone actually knows how another person votes in Canada. He could choose whomever he wanted when he went to the ballot box.

This one will be interesting to watch.

Vote buying happens all the time in the U.S. ... but our parties don't like that nasty paper trail that Ebay leaves behind.  Smile  Smile

People put all kinds of crazy stuff on Ebay. They will pull it as soon as someone notifies them.
