Legal and Constitutional Affairs – April 9, 2014 – Part 1

The committee continues with its pre-study of Bill C-23, the Fair Elections Act. Dr. Michael Pinto-Duschinsky, senior consultant to policy exchange at Constitutional Affairs, testifies from Oxford, U.K., via videoconference, on the role of the U.K. Electoral Commission and compares the British electoral model to the Canadian model. He calls vouching a peculiarly Canadian practice and calls for less political rhetoric in the debate over Bill C-23. (April 9, 2014)
