“I find that electoral fraud occurred during the 41st General Election but I am not satisfied that it has been established that the fraud affected the outcomes in the subject ridings and I decline to exercise my discretion to annul the results in those districts.”

That was part of the judgement Federal Court Judge Richard Mosley delivered in the “robocalls” case in Ottawa today. The case saw select voters in six ridings, with the support of the Council of Canadians, seeking to overturn the results of the 2011 election in their ridings on the grounds of fraud tied to misleading and harassing automated and call centres calls they received that have been traced to Conservative campaign workers.
