In Committee from the House of Commons - Procedure and House Affairs - April 10, 2014


Former Conservative turned Independent MP Bill Casey, who retired from federal politics in 2009, discusses how Bill C-23 will make it even more difficult for independent candidates to run in future elections. He outlines the advantages that candidates representing a party currently have over independent candidates due to different candidate rules and how the bill will exacerbate the disparity. Conservative MP Laurie Hawn shares his campaign team’s experiences from the 2006 federal election to illustrate the existence of electoral fraud. He tells MPs that he is testifying to dispel the notion that some people might have that election fraud does not happen in Canada.
Adam Shedletzky, co-founder of the advocacy group Leadnow.ca, and Éliane Laberge, President of the Fédération étudiante collégiale du Québec, express their concerns over several of the proposed changes.
Youri Cormier, executive director of the organization Apathy is Boring, aims to provide an accurate, impartial and balanced analysis of the youth electorate in Canada in relation to the Fair Elections Act. (April 10, 2014)
