CANADA ELECTIONS ACT

Compliance Agreement under section 517 of the Canada Elections Act

This Notice is published by the Commissioner of Canada Elections, pursuant to section 521 of the Canada Elections Act, S.C. 2000, c.9.

On April 30, 2002, the Commissioner of Canada Elections, pursuant to section 517 of the Canada Elections Act, entered into a compliance agreement with the contracting party, of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

In this agreement, the contracting party acknowledges having breached section 7 of the Canada Elections Act, by requesting a second ballot at the general election held on November 27, 2000, after registering on polling day in the electoral district of Erie–Lincoln. The contracting party had already voted at that election on November 18, 2000, at an advance poll in the electoral district of Don Valley East with the mistaken belief that an elector owning two properties in distinct electoral districts could vote twice.

Prior to the conclusion of the agreement, the Commissioner of Canada Elections has taken into account that the contracting party has contributed to the works of registered non-partisan charitable organizations such as the Canadian Cancer Society, the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, and other organizations in the province of Ontario, as a recognition of the seriousness of the offence.

In summary, the agreement required the contracting party to:
