Tories Handed a Little RoboCall ComeUppance.

The Tories, being the pricks that they are, thought they'd teach the petitioner/plaintiffs a lesson in the Robo-Call case.    Not content on skulking away with their small, tactical, "trench warfare" win after having been found to have committed electoral fraud and voter suppression, they decided to grind the applicants with a bill of costs for $355,907.

They got caught with their slimy hands in the cookie jar and without the slightest shame immediately sought to break the petitioners on a hurdle.

Well it fell to another judge to tell the scumbag Tories where to put their claims for legal costs.   The court trimmed down their $355-thousand claim to just the $1,000 security posted by each applicant plus just over $6,200 in disbursements.   The Tories took a 95% haircut on their costs.

Maybe the Tories will just have to go to Nigel Wright to see if he can bail them out on their massive robocall lawyers' bills.

The public needs to see profiles on harperite back room people. The slime balls that dream these things up. The same people that Harper sat in with to discuss a million dollar bribe attempt to win the vote of a cancer stricken MP.

Can you post the news source for this blog, please?

Victory against the barbarians, perhaps because it is rare, is ever so sweet, Mound.

Sorry, Anon, I got the news last night in an e-mail from the Council of Canadians. It should be in the major news today. CBC should have it.

It is sweet, indeed, Lorne.
