THE TRIAL OF MICHAEL SONA National Post – Defence grills witness about why Tories gave him $15,000 raise after pinning robocalls on Michael Sona GUELPH – Michael Sona’s defence lawyer chipped away at the credibility of the Crown’s first witness in the robocalls case on Monday, pressing him on the vagueness of his memory and asking pointed questions about the promotion and raise he received after giving evidence against his former friend. Chris Crawford, a Conservative ministerial staffer who worked alongside Sona on the Conservative campaign in Guelph, told the court that he had overheard his former friend speak of misdirecting voters to the wrong polling locations and sending out calls to annoy Liberal voters. Crawford is the first of 10 Crown witnesses, all current or former Conservative political staffers.CBC News – Star robocalls witness points to Michael Sona, Ken Morgan Andrew Prescott, the star witness at the trial of Michael Sona, suggested Conservative campaign manager Ken Morgan was involved in setting up the misleading robocalls that confused Guelph, Ont., voters in the last federal election. Prescott, the deputy campaign manager for the Conservative candidate in Guelph in 2011, said the campaign office was getting reports from supporters on May 2 that year that they had received phone calls telling them their polling station had moved, as well as a call that said the polls would close early.OPINION, COMMENTARY
