Key facts of violation
As the financial agent for Larry Ottewell, a Liberal Party of Canada contestant in the electoral district of Calgary Confederation during the 2019 nomination contest, Andrew Poetker 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 November 4, 2019.
Elections Canada has confirmed that the Return was submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer on February 23, 2021, 477 days after its deadline. There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Andrew Poetker failed to provide the Return within four months after the selection date, as required by subsection 476.75(7).
