FIPA, BCCLA protest Elections BC ‘advertising’ guidelines


On February 1st, Elections BC released their “Handmade Election Advertising” bulletin in response to the Supreme Court of Canada’s judgement last Thursday which clarified Election BC’s previous erroneous interpretation of BC’s Election Act’s third party spending provisions.

The Bulletin is plainly and obviously inconsistent with the SCC Judgment in many respects. See our joint letter with the BC Civil Liberties Association here.
