Now that Elections Canada has officially declared (see here) what we already knew (see here) that the partisan group Leadnow were the ones behind flooding the system with their robospam just to damage the Conservative Party, will they be sent the bill?
Elections Canada hired 14 staff just to deal with Leadnow’s spamming online forms not to mention how many other complaints and investigations may have been delayed or ignored while dealing with this deluge. By the way, Leadnow still continues to spam Elections Canada. (see here)
To me, this is an obvious case of mischief by a politically motivated group and they should now pay the same as any other vandal who has been caught.
