OTTAWA – Six Conservative MPs facing legal challenges of their 2011 election victories say there is no evidence a single person failed to cast a ballot because of misleading phone calls.

Lawyers representing the six MPs want the Federal Court of Canada to dismiss the case, arguing the people who brought the court challenges have failed to prove that either alleged "robocalls" or live calls affected the outcomes of the election in the closely fought ridings.

"Despite a vigorous advertising campaign and the assistance of two federal political parties, not a single witness has been brought before the Court to testify that anyone has ever failed to vote as a result of these alleged calls," the MPs say in a court document filed this week.
