OTTAWA - Deputy Liberal leader Ralph Goodale is asking the CRTC to investigate the Conservative party's latest use of robocalls in his Saskatchewan home turf.

The Conservatives have acknowledged commissioning a so-called "push poll" warning would-be voters in Saskatchewan that changes to electoral boundaries would undermine provincial values.

The computer-generated calls identified no political party, saying only that they came from a company called Chase Research.

The Tories say they should have been identified as coming from the Conservative party.

Goodale says the robocalls are a deplorable attempt to undermine the work of the federal commission drafting new riding boundaries in the province.

He says the federal telecommunications regulator should investigate the calls.
