Chief Electoral Officer Submits Recommendations Report to Parliament on
Preventing Deceptive Communications with Electors

Ottawa, Wednesday, March 27, 2013

"Since May 2011, and even more specifically over the past year, thousands of Canadians have contacted my office to share their concerns about the deceptive communications tactics that were used during the last general election," said Mr. Mayrand. "The public reaction to those incidents clearly demonstrates the importance that Canadians attach to the integrity of their electoral process. Parliament, Elections Canada and all participants in the electoral process must work together to implement the changes necessary to prevent the recurrence of such tactics in the future."
