Procedure and House Affairs committee  I only would link that to the previous comment that was made about a minister being able to come more or less at the last minute, so the longer the notice is, the more likely it is that you'll be caught in a situation where there is uncertainty in terms of who is going to be part

Procedure and House Affairs committee  Thank you. We have covered the first two, and I am down at the third one with respect to the new provision, 384.5. This is something I did address in my opening remarks. There may be situations where there is a missing element in the report and the CEO should have the authority

Procedure and House Affairs committee  It certainly does increase transparency, yes.

October 3rd, 2017Committee meeting

Stéphane Perrault

Procedure and House Affairs committee  I just want to make clear here in a scenario where you would invite only people who have contributed over a certain amount, in this case over $200, that would, generally speaking, be caught by this bill.

Stéphane Perrault

Procedure and House Affairs committee  Correct. If a prior condition for attending the event is having made a contribution of more than $200, so that includes a donor appreciation event, it would be caught, unless the donor appreciation event is held during a party convention. There it is exempted.

Procedure and House Affairs committee  On your editorial comment, I want to clarify that the fundraising events that are captured would include a fundraising event that is held for the benefit of the nominee in Lanark, in your scenario, as long as the leader of the party, or interim leader of the party, or leadership

Stéphane Perrault

Procedure and House Affairs committee  Fundamentally that's a policy question as to how far you want to go. It's not for me to speak to that. The purpose of this bill is not to limit fundraising activities. It's not to restrict the amounts people can give. It does not deal with the fairness of the electoral process, i

Procedure and House Affairs committee  It's not $200 but over $200, which mirrors the contribution disclosure rule even though, in this case, it may not be a full contribution as long as a portion of that is a contribution. If you are buying an over-$200 ticket, let's say that $75 of that is a meal benefit that you bu

Stéphane Perrault

Procedure and House Affairs committee  The person who buys the table will be making a contribution minus any personal benefits that he or she directly receives from attending, so the value of his or her meal, but not the others. With respect to that contribution, in this case I would assume most of the $500 would be r

October 3rd, 2017Committee meeting

Stéphane Perrault

Procedure and House Affairs committee  The penny makes the difference. The reporting rules currently in the act for reporting the name and address of the contributors are contributions made over $200 in the aggregate. If in a year you make several contributions, and at the end of the day you've made in the calendar ye

October 3rd, 2017Committee meeting

Stéphane Perrault

Procedure and House Affairs committee  Correct. That's true of every threshold. There's always the penny over that threshold, whatever the threshold is.

October 3rd, 2017Committee meeting

Stéphane Perrault

Procedure and House Affairs committee  It is more than $200, which is the same threshold in the act for contribution disclosure. Even though in this case the amount of the contribution may in fact be less than $200, it's the price of the ticket.

October 3rd, 2017Committee meeting

Stéphane Perrault

Procedure and House Affairs committee  Not quite. What I'm getting at is that the definition captures all kinds of expenditures that have nothing to do with either a leadership contest or a nomination contest, which we're not intending to capture. We would not read it that way. The definition was just borrowed from

Procedure and House Affairs committee  The notice given to Elections Canada should be made no later than at the same time the notice is put on the website.
