Key facts of violation
As the official agent for the electoral campaign of Marie Duplessis, a Green Party of Canada candidate during the 43rd general election held on October 21, 2019, Nicolas Parent was required, under subsection 477.59(7) of the Act, to file the Candidate's Electoral Campaign Return (Return) within four months after polling day. The deadline to submit the Return was February 21, 2020.
Elections Canada confirmed that the Return was submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer on June 15, 2020, 115 days after the deadline. There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Nicolas Parent was in violation of the requirement to provide the Return within four months of polling day, as required by subsection 477.59(7).
