Some Elections Canada workers say they still haven't been paid in full for their work in the 2021 election, more than two months after voters went to the polls. Martin Meredith, a retiree in Oshawa, Ont., said this is the second time he's had to wait weeks for Elections Canada to pay money it owed him for work at an advanced polling station.
