Call firm hands over docs related to Tory campaign - 2012-02-28
Elections Canada has asked an Edmonton-based call firm hired by the Conservative Party in the last federal election to hand over records related to a Tory campaign at the heart of the growing "robocall" scandal.
A production order issued by the federal agency last November asks RackNine Inc. to hand over any data, such as emails or billing records, linked to the Conservative campaign in Guelph, Ont., where the robocall accusations originated. Residents said they received phone calls directing them to the wrong voting locations.
They are also asking for all records related to a disposable "burner" cellphone number from Joliette, Que., also linked to the robocalls.
