Key facts of violation
As the candidate for the New Democratic Party in the electoral district of Etobicoke North during the 44th federal general election, Cecil Peter was required by section 477.42 of the Canada Elections Act (the Act) to appoint a replacement official agent without delay upon the resignation of their official agent.
Cecil Peter’s former official agent provided their resignation effective January 19, 2022. Elections Canada’s records confirmed that, as of July 12, 2023, a replacement official agent had not been appointed.
There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Cecil Peter failed to appoint a replacement official agent, as required by section 477.42 of the Act.
