Key facts of violation
As the official agent for Stephanie Robinson, a People's Party of Canada candidate in the electoral district of Barrie–Innisfil during the 43rd federal general election, Joseph Salmon was required, by virtue of subsection 477.59(7) of the Act, to provide the Candidate's Electoral Campaign Return and the required documents (Return) to the Chief Electoral Officer, within four months after polling day. The deadline to provide the Return was February 21, 2020, and it was provided on April 28, 2021, 431 days after the deadline.
There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Joseph Salmon failed to provide the Return within four months of polling day, as required by subsection 477.59(7).
The final AMP amount is $200, as it includes one mitigating factor. A mitigating factor relating to the person’s ability to pay the penalty was applied.
