Or some such thing, according to McMaher of Postmedia. Here's their lede:
OTTAWA — A left-of-centre advocacy group that brought legal challenges against the election of six Conservative MPs was looking for “payback” and wanted to advance its “anti-Harper agenda” the MPs’ lawyer told the Federal Court in an often tense hearing Monday.
Conservative lawyer Arthur Hamilton says the Council of Canadians is the true litigant behind the six legal challenges.
Lawyers for voters in six ridings allege voter suppression calls affected the results of the election, and want the court to order byelections.
Hamilton wants the court to toss out the six cases based on the legal prohibition against “champerty and maintenance” — trying to benefit from someone else’s lawsuit...
Thus, apparently, the Cons' first gambit is is to make like Mr. Jaggers and try to wash everything away by claiming that the six citizens involved are buying into the Council's lawsuit.
That and it's all political.
Or some such thing.
Alison has more.....Much more.
