Saskatchewan Liberal MP Ralph Goodale has filed a complaint to the CRTC about the robocall scandal.
Federal Conservatives admitted Tuesday that they were behind robotic calls that told people electoral boundary changes would “destroy Saskatchewan values”. After initially denying involvement, a party spokesperson said the calls should have been identified as coming from them.
The error was blamed on an internal miscommunication.
Goodale called the behavior appalling.
An independent commission is proposing to re-draw some of the province’s 14 federal ridings in order to better reflect the rising populations of Saskatchewan’s big cities.
