Key facts of violation
As the financial agent for Mathieu Haley, a Liberal Party of Canada contestant in the electoral district of Cape Breton--Canso during the 2019 nomination contest, Rachelle Samson was required, by virtue of subsection 476.75(7) of the Act, to file the Nomination Contestant's Campaign Return (Return), within four months after the selection date. The deadline to submit the Return was February 21, 2020.
Elections Canada has confirmed that the Return was submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer on April 2, 2021, 406 days after its due date. There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Rachelle Samson contravened subsection 476.75(7) of the Act.
