In Committee from the House of Commons - Procedure and House Affairs - March 4, 2014 - Part 1


New Democrat MP David Christopherson continues his filibuster in support of cross-country hearings on Bill C-23, the government's Fair Elections Act. His motion calls for the committee to hear from various groups on the impact of the proposed legislation and the implications it will have on the rights of Canadians to vote. The motion also calls for the committee to proceed to its clause-by-clause consideration of the bill only after these hearings have been completed, with a goal to begin the review on May 1.
Christopherson provides examples of potential witnesses who would offer relevant perspectives and also points out the travel of different parliamentary committees during their work studying legislation and issues.
