When Aisha and Maryama Hassan rode a bus home together after the federal election, they were surprised to find that they each had a similar story to tell the other.
The sisters both worked for Elections Canada that night and said they were victims of racial and anti-Muslim discrimination. Elections Canada is urging them to file formal complaints.
"Any elector who feels the process did not serve them... should certainly report it to us," Elections Canada spokesperson John Enright, who called the allegations "unacceptable," said. "If at the end of the inquiry it's found that something did in fact occur... those people will not be retained in any future federal election, period."
