OTTAWA - In bringing legal action against the government over the robocalls scandal, the left-wing Council of Canadians has recruited voters to lend their names to its pursuit of "sinking the Harper agenda," the Conservative party's lawyer told Federal Court Monday.

Arthur Hamilton argued the lobby group actively recruited individuals to use their names as applicants on six legal challenges currently before the courts.
