Elections Canada refuses to provide public figure of cost of "robocalls" investigation

Elections Canada has refused to provide a public figure for the final costs of its biased and compromised "robocalls" investigation.

In 2013, Elections Canada asked that I submit a formal Access to Information request when I asked what the to-date costs were.  As of February 2013, they responded, that investigation had cost $779,891.

Now that the Commissioner of Canada Elections has concluded his investigation and completely exonerated the Conservative Party of any wrongdoing, I asked Elections Canada for a final tally.

It's yet another no-go, as Elections Canada responded that I would again have to file a formal access to information request rather than be provided with the figures via email.

That's a $5 I will gladly spend ($6 if you include the stamp), and I will keep everyone updated on the response.
