Commissioner of Canada Elections Appears Before Parliamentary Committee
on Bill C-23

Gatineau, Tuesday, April 1, 2014

"It is essential that Canadians have full confidence in their elections and electoral system. This can only be achieved through rigorous, timely and efficient enforcement when wrongdoing is suspected," said Mr. Côté. "I hope the Committee – and, ultimately, Parliament – appreciates the importance for the Commissioner to have the proper investigative tools, such as the ability to seek a court order to compel testimony, in order to enforce our electoral laws and protect our democratic values."
