Special Committee Conducting Public Consultations on Local Elections Expense Limits

A Special Committee on Local Elections Expense Limits has been established by the Legislative Assembly to examine, inquire into and make recommendations regarding local elections expense limits. Specifically, the Committee is examining principles for the relationship between elector organizations and their candidates with respect to expense limits and principles for establishing expense limits for third party advertisers.

To support its mandate, the Committee is currently seeking input from British Columbians and organizations through written submissions, video and audio file submissions and participation in an online questionnaire – all available on the Committee’s website. The deadline to receive written and online input is Friday, November 21, 2014.

In addition, local residents are invited to participate in a presentation opportunity being held at a public meeting in Victoria on Wednesday, November 19th.  The meeting will take place from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm in the Douglas Fir Committee Room (Rm 226) of the Parliament Buildings. Additional presentation opportunities are also being held in Vancouver on November 7th and 8th.
