Watchdog lays charges against former Liberal financial agent


By Rachel Gilmore. Published on Dec 19, 2017 2:51pm

The commissioner of Canada Elections has laid two charges against a former Liberal financial agent.

Margot Doey-Vick, the former financial agent for the Scarborough-Agincourt Federal Liberal Association, has been charged with “failing to submit financial returns and submitting unsatisfactory returns for a deregistered Electoral District Association,” a press release said Tuesday morning.

Scarborough-Agincourt is the riding Jean Yip won in a recent byelection following the death of her husband, former Scarborough-Agincourt MP Arnold Chan.

A more detailed description of the allegations asserts that Doey-Vick, “on or about the 1st day of July, 2015,” failed to provide the Chief Electoral Officer with the Scarborough-Agincourt Federal Liberal Association’s financial transaction return. This return was required within six months of the Electoral District Association’s deregistration.

The second charge of “unsatisfactory returns,” was the result of Doey-Vick eventually providing the financial transaction return. When she provided the return, “it did not meet the requirements set out in the (Canada Elections) Act,” said Michelle Laliberté, the manager of Communications and Parliamentary Relations with the Office of the Commissioner of Canada Elections.

Oh Rwede! You're the best at giving us mysteries. :D

Is this woman a mastermind criminal, fortunately stopped short in her embarkment on her crime spree?

Or is she sadly out of her depth and didn't know who to turn to for aid in filing financial statements?

Which one is it Rwede? Or is it a Liberal plot to overthrow democracy as we know it?
Is it okay to have friends on all sides of the political spectrum? Or do I have to choose?

Illegal is illegal. Two charges there, four more against Trudeau today. The Liberals are worse than they've ever been, and they've been dreadfully crooked in the past. It just never seems to change with those guys.
Hey Horgan, orange and green mixed together make brown, and that's the colour of crap!

GF, you're such a hardliner. And you're right about, "those guys." Same for the BCLP. I guess anything with the name "Liberal" in it, goes.

Sorry I missed the four charges for Trudeau. I'm positive you will eagerly point me in the right direction to read all about it. :up:
