Andrew Prescott’s immunity deal is a strange development. The loyal party worker and born-again Christian had for two years categorically denied any knowledge of or involvement in the robocall affair. But why do innocent people need immunity deals? One of the people Prescott professed his innocence to was Michael Sona.

Are we lacking a critical mass of Canadians sufficiently outraged by widespread election fraud in the last general election to protest for government and system change, because Canadian youth never trusted the election to work in the first place?
We don’t know what will make headlines in 2014. After all, most political predictions are about as accurate as a Forum poll.
