Procedure and House Affairs committee  Do you mean the disclosure of huge donations?

June 5th, 2018Committee meeting

Duff Conacher

Procedure and House Affairs committee  The thing is, as a citizen group, you have to set up a separate bank account. You can't use foreign money at all. The money would have to go into that separate bank account. Then, if it is used, the contributors have to be disclosed, even if the money came in before June 30. I'm

Procedure and House Affairs committee  Do you mean the third party in B.C.?

Procedure and House Affairs committee  I think Bill C-76 goes further than B.C. because of this special bank account you have to set up.

Procedure and House Affairs committee  I haven't examined that in detail. I'm sorry.

Duff Conacher

Procedure and House Affairs committee  I think the interim report that's required will help, because not only will the third party have to register but you'll get some indication of where contributions are coming from. Overall, I think Elections Canada should be empowered to audit and be proactively auditing these thi

Procedure and House Affairs committee  I think we have to start, if this transition is made, with a notice going out to anyone a party has information about, letting them know what they have and then asking for their consent to whatever the use the party wants to make of it, with a simplified form. That's how the tran

Procedure and House Affairs committee  You can make an exception for that kind of thing. For example, people can be given notice in tax forms that this information is shared with political parties. There are ways of getting around that. I'm talking about other information that parties might have gathered from people—

Procedure and House Affairs committee  I don't have a problem with that particular part. You were just saying that the party would have to notify every voter, but there is another way of dealing with that kind of thing, where parties are shared that basic information. I'm referring to the other information that's gat

Procedure and House Affairs committee  It addresses the pre-writ, which is a start, although I don't think July and August are going to be big spending periods for anybody. They'll save their money and spend it.... It depends, of course, exactly when the election is called, but I think you'll see all of that spending

Duff Conacher

Procedure and House Affairs committee  Yes. The interim report that has to be filed will cover the pre-writ period or whatever period of time during the election campaign itself in which a party starts spending and crosses the threshold of $10,000, so there will be a disclosure if anyone participates. Some people ha

Procedure and House Affairs committee  The pre-writ period and the writ period. I'm not sure where those figures came from in the backgrounder. I would just make the overall point: how are these limits set? Why not look at what parties actually spent in the pre-writ period leading up to the 2011, 2015 elections. It's
