Conservative Party lawyer Arthur Hamilton believes that Canadian citizens' call for details of complaints about the misleading robocalls from last year's federal election should be ignored. The CBC explains that his argument is that the appeal comes too late, according to the Supreme Court's schedule, but it looks more like fear of what that evidence might reveal.
Voters in seven ridings are seeking a re-vote, due to the alleged effect that misleading phone calls had on the results. Only known non-Conservatives appear to have been targeted in what looks to many like a case of election fraud.
The Conservatives have appeared uncooperative since the beginning of the case. As citizens and the Council of Canadians fight for the overturning of election results, the majority Harper Government continues to anger Canadians across the country, including many of the people who voted them in.
The government has been pushing more and more extreme right policies that conflict with many traditional Canadian values and is even undermining the nation's beloved health care and social security system in favour of building massive prisons and bulking up the military. In spite of reports from Texas conservatives that show that this sort of approach to crime is ineffective and a drain on the country, Harper's Tories are pushing such policies through. Furthermore, the Government have raised the highest deficit in the history of the country and fell to a non-confidence vote in 2011, after being the first government in the entire Commonwealth to be found in contempt of Parliament.
With its legacy growing increasingly darker, the Conservative Party's reaction to the latest desired evidence in the robocalls case seems fearful at best and at least a little suspicious, no matter how you look at it.
