In Committee from the House of Commons - Procedure and House Affairs - December 10, 2013


Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand appears at the committee concerning a question of privilege related to a dispute on campaign expenses between Elections Canada and Conservative MP James Bezan.

Elections Canada had ruled earlier this year that Bezan and fellow Conservative MP Shelly Glover filed incorrect expense reports from the 2011 campaign. A sub-section of the Canada Elections Act allows for MPs to be suspended from sitting or voting in the House of Commons until they make corrections to their campaign returns as requested. Glover re-filed a new report, while Bezan filed a court challenge against Elections Canada.

The House referred the matter to committee in October. (December 10, 2013)
