Bill in Ontario Addresses Leadership Fundraising
On April 29, a bill was introduced in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario for purposes of clarifying certain contributions.
Bill 103, the Election Finances Amendment Act (Leadership Fundraising Loophole) 2019, amends the Election Finances Act and provides that contributions to a leadership campaign following a leadership vote may only be used for the purpose of paying off campaign debt.
If passed, the private member’s bill introduced by MPP John Fraser, will come into effect on the day it receives Royal Assent.
