Legal and Constitutional Affairs – April 8, 2014 – Part 2

The committee continues with its pre-study of Bill C23, the government’s overhaul of Canada’s election laws. Chief electoral officer Marc Mayrand and his predecessor Jean-Pierre Kingsley share their perspectives of the widely-criticized legislation. The proposed bill includes measures that would curtail Elections Canada’s powers. (April 8, 2014)
