In Committee from the House of Commons - Procedure and House Affairs - May 28, 2015

Democratic Reform Minister Pierre Poilievre defends his bill to impose stricter voting rules for Canadian citizens living abroad. Bill C-50 was introduced in response to a 2014 Ontario Superior Court ruling that struck down a law that prevented Canadians from voting if they lived outside the country for more than five consecutive years.

House of Commons Speaker Andrew Scheer, acting House Clerk Marc Bosc and chief financial officer Mark G. Watters are questioned about the main estimates for the lower chamber during the second part of the meeting. (May 28, 2015)
