Federal Court battle hearings over allegations of voter suppression in last election to begin next month in Ottawa

A Federal Court battle over allegations of voter suppression in six federal ridings during the 2011 election is set to begin five days of hearings on Dec. 10, with the first skirmish over expert testimony from Ekos pollster Frank Graves.

Eight voters, backed by the Council of Canadians, are challenging the voting results in six ridings in last year's election, including top right and clockwise: Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan, Tory MPs Jay Aspin, Kelly Block, Ryan Leef, Lawrence Toet, and Joyce Bateman.
