In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - April 10, 2014 - Part 1

Yves Côté expresses his concerns about changes proposed by Bill C-23 and the impact on his role as commissioner of Canada Elections. Among the measures in the Fair Elections Act is a proposal to move the commissioner within the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Former B.C. chief electoral officer Harry Neufeld testifies during the second hour of the meeting. He is the author of a report on the 2011 general election that is often cited by Pierre Poilievre, the minister of state for democratic reform, to justify the government’s controversial Fair Elections Act. Neufeld has publically stated that the minister has not interpreted his report correctly. (April 10, 2014)
