The right to vote in democratic elections may be a basic entitlement in Canada, but the rules governing our electoral process are anything but straightforward. In this new edition, authors Donald J. Bourgeois and Jessica Spindler delve into the topic of election law in Canada and provide valuable insight into this important and evolving area.
Election Law in Canada is dedicated solely to examining the rules and regulations that apply to the running of elections in Canada. In addition to covering the laws affecting voting rights and participation in the electoral process, Bourgeois and Spindler provide an in-depth analysis of the laws that apply to candidates in elections as well as the laws governing riding associations and political parties and associations. This volume also explores the legislation that applies to the sometimes-controversial area of campaign financing.
