I hope so, I'd rather see a minority government in power than a majority.

Please bring justice to the travesty of robo-calls. Punish the guilty and, if necessary, force the six new elections. History will not be kind if we let this slide.

Why force six bi-election when there is no evidence that any one failed to vote in the six ridings. Not one person with said claim was presented into evidence by COC.

You have a twisted view of justice and democracy as you wish to remove the rights of voters who elected their respective MP's simple because you do not like the result.

Electoral fraud is the issue. If it was committed in a broad conspiracy in order to suppress the non-Conservative vote, then it needs to be dealt with seriously.

Really, if someone robs a bank, gets caught and then gives the money back, does that mean the robber is off the hook? The money isn't the issue. The robbery is the issue, the illegal act .

Twisted indeed... your logic.

Do we need to legislate voters to go to the polls? set some real consequences to people not respecting the very democracy that was paid for in blood of those that fought for your freedom.
Seriously, does not matter who you vote for, just that you vote.

Millions could not be bothered to vote, sure a few have barriers to voting, the rest of you have nothing but pathetic excuses for not doing your duty for the very country that makes your life possible, there are billions who do not have those rights or freedoms and I'm pretty darn sure they'll trade places with you.

Fair elections only really matter to the 98%, of those, less than half showed up to vote and that's across the country. ( I know just over half the elegible voters went to the polls, but the 2% sure did). I don't know what or how much the voter suppresion campaign effected the results, but nothing effects the results more than just not bothering to show up!

It is a duty and a right to vote, You disrespect all those that fought for you to have that right and privilege, to disregard your duty is spitting on the graves of those that died for your rights.

No sane judge is going to put aside the results of six electoral contests scattered across Canada based simply on the fact they were the 7 closest results.

no....it would be because of fraud

Ya it was because they were close, nothing to do with the electoral fraud being perpetrated.

Your mind and your logic is going as you get older.

Anyone who would act on a robo call has probably sent money to the Nigerian prince's request for help. P.T. Barnum had it right.

Quite true. So the fact that the people who reported the robocalls weren't fooled doesn't mean that the people who made misleading robocalls shouldn't get a smackdown.

And both of those things are considered crimes, both of them fraud. Very good of you to be able to associate.

Every call then from a political group must  be criminal since they all just spew lies and B.S. promises they have no intention of honoring. Or you could just hang up.

It is really disturbing to hear so many Harper supporters essentially argue that this is all about 'sour grapes' regarding the election results (in which the Harperites 'won'), as if it is irrelevant whether a party wins an election fairly or fraudulently. It is tantamount to saying that an election is really only about who can be the most successfully or effectively fraudulent -- and whoever wins that contest or 'election' is the real winner, regardless.

I have many family members who did not leave the party after Mulroney (when I left) and some who remained until Orchard was stabbed in the back by MacKay, and some are still tories. But each one of those who are still torybelieve that something untoward occurred. It surprises me that so many tories on these comment boards are either unable to care that democracy was seriously compromised, unwilling to admit it, think this is as simple as sour grapes or are paid to well by the PMO to care about little things like democracy, honesty, or truth.

They took the "progressive" out of the PC party. MacKay is their version of Brutus, stabbing anyone he could in the back for his own aggrandizement. This is surely the most crooked, duplicitous, undemocratic gov't Canada has ever seen.

I have read many of your posts and frequently you have a point that is interesting or adds to the conversations. I know that you know that the liberal call and these calls are two very different issues. And I am pretty sure that you know that the Liberal in question admitted his role and was sanctioned accordingly. His call stated the current position of the opponent it did not tell a lie. His error was that he didn't identify the call as coming from his campaign.

That is different than pretending to be the opposition and calling people at time sure to offend them and hopefully turn them off of the party or encourage them not to vote.

That is very different that pretending to be Elections Canada - illegal in its own right and to give out intentionally false information about voting stations.

Also lets not forget that these fraudulent calls were made to many ridings all across Canada., predominantly to voters who had previously identified themselves as non-tory supporters, and these calls were not limited to one riding as the liberal call was.

that what you do when the facts are against you

their defense is primarily procedural. When you can't fight the facts use technicalities.

Robocalls Case Could See 6 Tory MPs Booted From Office

Maybe there is a Santa after all.

Be careful how you hope.CH" of Canada is still at work.
I hear thet this judge is a conservative and ,if so were Harpers raises tfor judges a possiblt attempted buy off?
This judge should be segregated until his decision is presented. He will havbe far to much access from the Harper cult advising how he should rule.
BEWARE THE GRINCH!!

The radical-left, anti-Conservative Council of Canadians, who funded this false and phoney witch hunt in order to to over-turn an election will fail.
And you can take that to the bank. I'll give 10 to 1 odds. Any takers?

The judge can not rule on this case. The only item than came within a hairs distance of being actual evidence was ' heresay ' .. the COC may appeal however it will achieve nothing except keep the issue in a higher state in the media for their poltical agenda and as such may allow them to continue fundraising but as far as actual law goes the courts have no other recouse and heresay isn't allowed .. case closed.

I guess when you learn to spell hearsay correctly, I might take at face value that you really understand any of the legal principles.
