Election Law: How Section 91 Ruling Will Affect The Next Election

Posted on March 19, 2021

Honesty in politics. It’s something voters want and look for. Considering the vitriol and abuse in the last few elections, it would be refreshing to have more.

Last year, the federal government introduced Section 91 of the Canada Elections Act. Those against the law feel it brings a “chill” to political discourse. On the other side of the coin, those in support see it as taking on “fake news”.

The law has been struck down in court, and we do not know whether it will be appealed.
