Key facts of violation
As the financial agent for Judith Forbes, a Liberal Party of Canada contestant in the electoral district of Haliburton–Kawartha Lakes–Brock during the 2019 nomination contest, David Forbes was required, by virtue of subsection 476.75(7) of the Act, to file the Nomination Contestant’s Campaign Return (Return) and required documents, within four months after the selection date. The deadline to submit the Return was October 28, 2019.
Elections Canada has confirmed that the Return was submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer on August 2, 2021, 643 days after the deadline. There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that David Forbes failed to provide the Return within four months after the selection date, as required by subsection 476.75(7).
