OTTAWA, December 2 (Itar-Tass) — Russians, who are staying in Canada, will be able to cast ballots at four polling stations on the day of the elections to the Duma. They will be opened in Ottawa, Toronto, Monteal and Vancouver, Andrei Varlamov, head of the consular department of the Russian embassy in Canada, told Itar-Tass.
“During preparations for the voting a special note was forwarded to the Canadian Foreign Ministry, and the Canadian officials gave their consent to the organisation of voting on the territory of diplomatic missions,” he said. According to his information, premises for the voting are ready.
