COMMISSIONER OF CANADA ELECTIONS
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, as amended.
On August 30, 2006, the Commissioner of Canada Elections entered into a compliance agreement with the contracting party, of the City of Woodstock, Ontario, Canada, pursuant to section 517 of the Canada Elections Act.
In this agreement, the contracting party admits to acts that constitute an offence under section 7 of the Canada Elections Act, as he registered and requested a second ballot on June 28, 2004, in the electoral district of Toronto–Danforth, after having already voted at the advance poll in the electoral district of Oxford on June 21, 2004, with the mistaken belief that one who is registered to vote in one polling division and had a residence in another polling division was entitled to vote twice.
Prior to the conclusion of the agreement, the Commissioner of Canada Elections took into account that the contracting party contributed to the work of a non-partisan registered charitable organization, that he admitted responsibility for the acts that constitute the offence and that he undertook to comply with the provisions of the Canada Elections Act in the future.
In summary, the compliance agreement required the contracting party to:
- admit the truthfulness of the facts and his responsibility for the acts that constitute the offence;
- recognize the importance of complying with the provisions of the Canada Elections Act; and,
- undertake to vote only once in future elections.
