Key facts of violation
As the candidate for the Green Party of Canada in the electoral district of Durham during the 43rd federal general election (held on October 21, 2019), Evan Price was required, by virtue of section 477.42 of the Canada Elections Act (Act), to appoint a replacement official agent without delay, upon the resignation of his official agent.
On April 7, 2021, Evan Price's former OA provided the OCCE investigator proof of her resignation. Elections Canada’s records confirm that, as of July 5, 2022, a replacement official agent had not been appointed.
There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Evan Price failed to appoint a replacement official agent, as required by section 477.42 of the Act.
