GUELPH, Ont. — A former colleague of accused election robocaller Michael Sona suggested in court Wednesday that Sona was indeed responsible for sending thousands of illegal and misleading automated phone calls to opposition voters during the 2011 federal election.
However, the testimony of Andrew Prescott, the 2011 deputy campaign manager to the Conservative candidate in the Guelph riding, also implicated his 2011 boss, Kenneth Morgan, who was head of the campaign.
Prescott maintained he was not involved in sending thousands of robocalls that warned voters in Guelph that their polling station had changed, when in fact, it had not.
Prescott, who signed an immunity agreement to speak against Sona, told a Guelph courtroom Wednesday that during the early morning hours of election day on May 2, 2011, Sona asked him how to upload a list of phone numbers from the Conservative database to the automated phone messaging service, RackNine.
