Canada man votes using his dog's name; a 'test'
Associated Press
A+ A-

FREDERICTON, Canada: An official with a Canadian political party is raising questions about the integrity of the opposition's leadership race in his province after he was able to vote using his dog's name.

Jean-Paul Soucy said Friday that he registered his dog "Pitou," or "puppy" in English, to vote online for one of the three candidates vying for the top Liberal job at Saturday's leadership convention in New Brunswick.

The executive director of the province's Conservative party says he wanted to test the Liberal voting system but couldn't use his own name because he's a member of another party.

Soucy says he was surprised when a voting package arrived in the mail for his dog.

He declined to say who he voted for.

No one from the Liberal party was immediately available to comment.
