Key facts of violation
As the financial agent for Isabelle Bergeron, a Liberal Party of Canada contestant in the electoral district of Abitibi--Baie-James--Nunavik--Eeyou, during the 2019 nomination campaign, Josée Laliberté 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 submit the Return was February 21, 2020.
Elections Canada has confirmed that the Return was submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer on April 14, 2021, 419 days after the deadline. There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Josée Laliberté failed to provide the Return within four months after the selection date, as required by subsection 476.75(7).
