More details are emerging in the mystery of "Pierre Poutine," a pseudonym of the person behind misleading election robocalls in Guelph, Ont.

Michael Sona, a 24-year-old former Conservative Party staffer, is the only person charged with masterminding an automated phone call that went to thousands of non-Conservative supporters in Guelph, Ont., on election day in 2011, sending voters to the wrong polling station.

New court documents in the Elections Canada investigation into the calls were made public late Monday, but are subject to a strict publication ban. The judge who issued the ban, Célynne Dorval, went so far as to order anyone who wants access to the documents to acknowledge in writing that the sealing order exists, and to refuse to provide photocopies of the publicly available documents, requiring the records to be viewed at the courthouse.
