Dave Chatters Conservative Westlock—St. Paul, AB

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-324, an act to amend the Canada Elections Act (public information programs).

Mr. Speaker, my private member's bill is designed to address an issue which took place in the last federal election whereby Elections Canada decided to institute a public education program targeted at a limited number of ridings. I objected to Elections Canada. I was not happy with the answer and therefore we drafted the bill.

I think it is unacceptable during the writ period for Elections Canada to get involved in a process that could skew the outcome of the election in a riding.
