@CPC_HQ fails to defraud Canadians of lawyer costs in #electionfraud case

Federal Court Justice Richard Mosley has ruled that the applicants in the recent high-profile election fraud legal challenge will not have to pay the Conservative Party $355,907 in legal costs, ruling on a reimbursement request that was filed this past June.

In the Conservative’s bid to commit “trench warfare” (called by the judge) by delaying the court, thus increasing the costs to the applicants and ultimately Canada’s democracy, they were unable to garner the reimbursements from the high-profile election fraud challenge.

The judge made his decision based on the fact that, “the applicants in this matter were genuine public interest litigants motivated by a higher purpose” who “stood to gain nothing other than the vindication of their electoral rights.”
