In Committee from the House of Commons

Procedure and House Affairs – March 27, 2014

Harry Neufeld makes a highly-anticipated appearance at the committee to testify on Bill C-23. The former B.C. chief electoral officer is the author of a report on voting irregularities 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 is misinterpreting his report.
Samara executive director and co-founder Alison Loat, Fair Vote Canada board member Nathalie Des Rosiers, Institute for Research on Public Policy president Graham Fox, and Civix president Taylor Gunn present their views on the election reform bill during the second hour of the meeting.
