Procedure and House Affairs – April 2, 2014

Committee members hold another evening session on Bill C-23. Leilani Farha (Canada Without Poverty), Raji Mangat (British Columbia Civil Liberties Association), Cara Zwibel (Canadian Civil Liberties Association), lawyer James Quail, and Patti Tamara Lenard (Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives) all discuss their concerns about the proposal to eliminate vouching and how it will negatively impact the electoral process.
Harvard and Sydney University professor Pippa Norris, Memorial University of Newfoundland associate professor Alex Marland and retired Carleton University professor Jon Pammett discuss the areas of the bill that they feel will negatively impact electoral management and restrict voting rights and turnout.
