OTTAWA — Opposition parties are stepping up pressure on Stephen Harper today over misleading phone calls made during the last election campaign directing voters to the wrong polling locations.

Dismissing Conservative suggestions that a 'rogue operator' could be behind the 'robocalls,' interim Liberal leader Bob Rae said the real blame for any election trickery rests with the political culture the Prime Minister has created in the Tories.

Mr. Rae's remarks came in response to a Postmedia News-Ottawa Citizen report that found a continuing Elections Canada investigation has traced the calls to a call centre with Conservative connections.
