GATINEAU, QC, Feb. 21, 2019 /CNW/ - The Commissioner of Canada Elections has entered into a compliance agreement with Beina Zhu who served as the official agent for Mohammad Zamir, Conservative Party of Canada candidate in the electoral district of LaSalle—Émard—Verdun, for the purposes of the 2015 federal general election. Ms. Zhu failed to issue receipts to 72 individuals for contributions of more than $20, as required by the Canada Elections Act.
The full text of the compliance agreement is available on the Commissioner of Canada Elections' website at: www.cef-cce.gc.ca.
Compliance agreements are voluntary and outline the terms and conditions that the Commissioner considers necessary to ensure compliance with the Canada Elections Act. These agreements may include a statement by the individual or organization ("contracting party") admitting responsibility for the act or omission constituting the offence. The admission of responsibility does not constitute a criminal conviction by a court of law and does not create a criminal record for the contracting party. More information about compliance agreements can be found at sections 517 to 521 of the Canada Elections Act.
The Commissioner of Canada Elections is the independent officer responsible for ensuring compliance with, and enforcement of, the Canada Elections Act and the federal Referendum Act.
