Key facts of violation
As the financial agent for Karl Trudel, a nomination contestant in the 2019 Liberal Party of Canada nomination contest in the electoral district of Mirabel, Michel Thauvette was required, by virtue of subsection 476.75(7) of the Act, to file the Nomination Contestant’s Campaign Return (Return), within four months after the selection date. The deadline to provide the Return was October 15, 2019.
Elections Canada confirmed that the Return was submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer on June 7, 2021, 601 days after the deadline.
There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Michel Thauvette failed to provide the Return within four months of the selection date, as required by subsection 476.75(7).
