Toronto Liberal candidate Joe Volpe says someone displaying an American-based phone number is targeting his supporters in the Italian community with repeated, harassing telephone calls.

Volpe — an incumbent candidate in the riding of Eglinton-Lawrence, who is seen as vulnerable to a potential Conservative breakthrough in Toronto — says angry residents have called him to complain that they have been contacted four or five times in the past week.

They report being asked, "Do you plan to vote for Joe Volpe? Would you like a lawn sign?"
