Key facts of violation

As the official agent for the electoral campaign of Dana Metcalfe, the People’s Party of Canada candidate in the electoral district of St. John’s East during the federal general election held on September 20, 2021, Shane Sweeney was required under subsection 477.59(1) of the Canada Elections Act (the Act), to provide the Candidate's Electoral Campaign Return and other required documents (Return) to the Chief Electoral Officer, outlining the financing and expenses for the candidate's electoral campaign.

The deadline to submit the Return was January 20, 2022. Elections Canada's records showed that as of July 19, 2023, the Return had still not been submitted.

There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Shane Sweeney failed to provide the Return, as required by subsection 477.59(1).
