Key facts of violation
As the financial agent for Francesco Cavaleri, a contestant in the electoral district of Saint-Léonard–Saint-Michel during the 2019 nomination Liberal Party of Canada contest, Michel Bernucci was required, by virtue of subsection 476.75(1) of the Act, to file the Nomination Contestant's Campaign Return (Return). The deadline to submit the Return was September 27, 2019.
Elections Canada confirmed that as of April 25, 2022, the Return has still not been submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer.
There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Michel Bernucci failed to provide the Return, as required by subsection 476.75(1).
