Media locked away from Robocall hearing?

National Post -- Elections Canada boss Marc Mayrand offered to give evidence to MPs, but was scheduled by the government to appear on the same day that most political journalists in Ottawa will be in the federal budget “lockup.” The appearance was scheduled by committee chairman Joe Preston, a Conservative MP. New Democrat David Christopherson suggested after the hearing that it was convenient for a government that is seeking to minimize attention to the robocall story. “I don’t want to make a federal case of it, but it would seems to be an advantage to the government to have it happen today,” he said.
