Foreword


August 2005

This report deals with the federal by-election held May 24, 2005, in the electoral district of Labrador in Newfoundland and Labrador.

I am pleased to publish this report to satisfy the requirements of the Canada Elections Act, S.C. 2000, c. 9, and to ensure that Canadians have accurate and complete information on the by-election. It is through such public reports that Parliament and Elections Canada make the Canadian electoral system more open and transparent.

This report presents the results of the vote, by polling division, for the May 24, 2005, by-election, in accordance with paragraph 533(a) of the Act. Subsection 534(2) of the Act also requires me to report on the administration of my Office since the last such report, as well as on certain actions taken by my Office in relation to the by-election. A report will be published in March 2006 covering this and any other by-election that may take place in 2005.

Information on contributions and election expenses declared by the candidates in the May 24 by-election will be available in October 2005 at www.elections.ca.
