OTTAWA - The commissioner of Canada elections is calling a halt to his investigation of deceptive robocalls during the 2011 election, saying there is not enough evidence to believe an offence was committed.

Yves Cote says as a result, he won't be referring the matter to the federal director of public prosecutions — a conclusion that he says is supported by an independent review by a former Supreme Court justice.

Cote's investigation is separate and distinct from robocall allegations during the same election in Guelph, Ont., that resulted in charges against a lone Conservative campaign staffer.
