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 May 13, 2005, the Commissioner of Canada Elections entered into a compliance agreement with the contracting party from Loretteville, Quebec, Canada, pursuant to section 517 of the Canada Elections Act.
In this agreement, the contracting party admits violating section 7 of the Canada Elections Act, as she requested a second ballot on polling day during the 2004 general election in the electoral district of Louis-Saint-Laurent after having voted in advance in the same election.
Prior to the conclusion of the agreement, the Commissioner of Canada Elections took into account that the contracting party volunteered at a registered non-partisan charitable organization, that she admitted responsibility for the acts that constitute the offence and that she undertook to comply with the provisions of the Act in the future.
In summary, the compliance agreement required the contracting party to
- admit to the truthfulness of the facts and her 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.
