The NDP says Elmwood-Transcona was targeted by robocalls misdirecting voters.

According to the NDP, the party’s campaign manager in Elmwood-Transcona has informed them of more than half a dozen complaints received in Jim Maloway’s campaign office on election day from voters who said someone phoned them and said their polling station location had changed.

Elmwood-Transcona, a longtime NDP-held riding, saw Conservative Lawrence Toet upset Maloway, the incumbent MP, by 300 votes. Maloway said the margin was so close the so-called robocalls may have played a role. Maloway said he did not know about the calls until contacted by the Free Press on Friday.

Meanwhile, Liberal MP Mark Eyking confirms complaints in Sydney-Victoria.
