Bill

C-406: An Act to amend the Canada Elections Act (Foreign Contributions).

Second reading.

Vote

Nay.

Rationale

The Government supports the policy objective of ensuring there is no foreign influence in Canadian elections and supports a level-playing field for all participants. However, many of the measures in Bill C-406 are redundant when considering Bill C-76. Further, the measures in Bill C-76 are likely more enforceable than those contained in Bill C-406.

Result

Defeated.
