Elections Canada and Robocon: The Uncompellable Three

A snippet from the report:

Inability to compel testimony
Individuals who are not suspected of wrongdoing often have relevant information that could assist in determining whether the Canada Elections Act has been contravened and shed light on the circumstances of the contravention. Often, their collaboration is critical at the early stages of an investigation. However, experience demonstrates that, for a number of reasons, these individuals may refuse to collaborate with investigators, or they may only agree to do so after considerable efforts and delays that may result in the loss of key evidence.

For example, in the case of the Guelph investigation into misleading robocalls, the publicly available court records show that at least three individuals believed to have key information refused to speak with investigators. The inability to compel testimony has been one of the most significant obstacles to effective enforcement of the Act.

Will you help us find out if there was massive fraud during the May 2011 federal electionj?

Nope. I don't want to.
