The country could hold its breath, but would probably pass out for waiting. When will Conservatives be charged for their election fraud crimes? Here’s a summary from Sixth Estate listing the allegations Penashue has admitted were correct today, as he guiltily stepped down. Canadians should not let Elections Canada off the hook by letting them write another compliance agreement with a criminal Minister.
Elections Canada was pursuing this business with Penashue. Will there be a compliance agreement? Is this part of it?—

That PMO statement was rather curt. No mention of Peter Penashue running again in a byelection. Wonder if that was his idea, not theirs.—

This video is a year old now, and we’re waiting for the DPP to decide to press charges for the illegal robocalls made specifically in the Guelph area (while the rest across the country are hardly even investigated!).
Since the video was made, Pat Martin who you hear as the speaker, has settled with Racknine Inc. for casting them as being purposefully involved in sending Pierre Poutine’s illegal robocalls. Racknine recently returned to notoriety for being the firm to run robocalls in Saskatchewan in contravention of CRTC guidelines to properly identify the caller. They were push polling on behalf of the CPC. The deceptive nature of the calls was reminiscent of the Poutine misdirection calls of May 2, 2011.
Just noticed that the NDP were asking the DPP to hurry up and step in last August.
UPDATE: How could they not charge Penashue? His illegal contributions accepted total almost the FINE paid by the Conservatives for their national In & Out scam from the 2006 election.
ADDED: CBC got wind of a report about robocalls.
