Key facts of violation
As the official agent for the electoral campaign of Lily Bowman, an independent candidate in the electoral district of Vancouver Centre during the 43rd federal general election held on October 21, 2019, Omar Ricardo Chin was required, under subsection 477.59(1) of the Act, to provide the Candidate's Electoral Campaign Return (Return) to the Chief Electoral Officer, outlining the financing and expenses for the candidate's electoral campaign. The deadline to submit the Return was February 21, 2020.
As of January 24, 2022, Elections Canada's records show that the Return has still not been submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer.
There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Omar Ricardo Chin is in violation of the requirement to provide the Return, as required by subsection 477.59(1) of the Act.
