of sweeping robocall investigation



OTTAWA — Elections Canada has reported it is investigating reports of fraudulent and deceptive calls across Canada, but court documents made public Monday show investigators have not sought phone or Internet records for any calls beyond Guelph, Ont., raising a question about how vigorously the agency is looking into reports from voters.

Last month, as part of a lawsuit seeking to overturn the election results in seven ridings, the Council of Canadians asked Elections Canada for details about the agency’s investigation into reports of calls across the country, including many that appeared to direct opposition supporters to the wrong polling stations.

The agency declined to give much detail about its investigation, but did agree to provide the left-leaning advocacy group with copies of all public documents filed in Canadian courts as part its investigation.

KUDOS TO THE SIXTH ESTATE , for going to all the cerebral effort to post "Inside Elections Canada’s Whitewash Report on Election Fraud: Armwaving, Cynicism, Red Herrings" . If you missed it, you must read it — and get very, very angry.


Aside from being one of Canada’s oldest and most well-regarded neoliberal think tanks, the IRPP has a great deal of experience with respect to studying political practices. Its president, Graham Fox, describes himself in his official bio as a former Ontario political candidate, an advisor to Joe Clark and Hugh Segal; he’s also a former secretary to Stephen Harper’s transition team . A year ago, IRPP was given a contract by Harper’s own ministry, the Privy Council Office, on the “political agitation” which resulted in the NDP surge in Quebec in May 2011. I can think of no better group to handle Elections Canada’s little focus group exercise.
