At least one more document — concerning complaints from those who get their phone service from Rogers — is likely to be released soon.

Holly Stick - Hamilton being paid by taxpayer money or from political donations the Cons raised?  :confused

I was surprised to learn today one person got 3 poll-moving calls and he didn't vote !
The 3 parties have joined forces!
Members of Parliament Elizabeth May (Saanich–Gulf Island), Craig Scott (Toronto–Danforth) and Stéphane Dion (St-Laurent–Cartierville) joined forces today and tabled a petition calling for an investigation into the Conservative’s Robocall scandal.

I sure hope this gets resolved and we see some arrest warrants issued.

Oh I don't foresee that sparks. It would upset the balance of power too much, according to the higher powers of course. But it's all being done wrong, the EC report isn't even out yet which could hold evidence. As far as I'm concerned the Cons did it, intent is what matters, but they have EC on their side it seems. EC is now just another accomplice to protect 'democracy'. Which is why of course we need a public inquiry. I don't even care what EC finally releases, it'll just prove to be the Cons abettor. Public Inquiry or nothing.

Evidence suggests election robocalls were targeted, court hearsBut 'no loaded gun' pointing to electoral fraud, lawyer for challengers says
Shrybman said the applicants are not alleging the Conservative Party, Conservative officials or Responsive Marketing Group, a company that made campaign calls on behalf of the party, had anything to do with carrying out the fraud.

So the Con party didn't have anything to do with it? Well the 'vast left-wing' seems to think otherwise. If this was orchestrated by a bunch of ideologues within they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Mind you I don't think the Cons themselves think this, otherwise why try so hard to shut it down? Perhaps because many are still working within.

No loaded gun ...


RMG won't hand over rest of robocalls or name of Con that Poutine said referred him, Con lawyer won't allow Guelph staffer(s) present for Poutine calls to talk, CPC won't explain missing CIMS data ....


They're lucky to have found the bullet holes, never mind a loaded gun, huh?

I just read today's tweets. Hamilton seems a spoiled, whiny, griping, sissy crybaby over Graves looking at twitter when he was told to go outside the courtroo. I am totally mystified by Payton's 2nd last tweet where she says in reply to Shybman's statement there is srs questions about public confidence, that Mosley said Might they be eased with a couple of criminal prosecutions?  :o

And it's over.


Judge says he must issue decision in both official languages. Don't expect anything rapidly. Wishes all "pleasant holiday season."
