I don't want to tread in a field where I'm not trained, which is law. I would simply say that I think it should be higher. It should remain a fine. It shouldn't be moved into criminal offences under the Canada Elections Act.
It seems to me, as with the five-day notice, that it's almost sending a signal that we have to do this stuff, but let's not make it more difficult than necessary. This is different from election expenses. This is different from reporting on contributions. On the other hand, it's not unrelated to contributions. If it's meant to be a serious step forward, then this should be communicated in the terms of the bill.
