Prime Minister Stephen Harper insisted for a second day that his party did nothing wrong by commissioning a series of robocalls aimed at Saskatchewan residents about proposed changes to electoral boundaries in federal ridings in the province.

In question period Thursday,Harper said, "There was no violation of CRTC rules in this case, unlike the Liberal Party did in a different case. The fact of the matter, Mr. Speaker, is that the party has said there was a mistake here and we have clarified that."

Harper did not say what the "mistake' was, but the Conservative Party issued a statement two days ago saying, "the calls should have been identified as coming from the Conservative Party."
