-> This news was reported first by the Star (newspaper in Toronto, Ontario) however with a paywall. Now it has been picked-up by the CBC so it can be copy and pasted. = ) Senior party source says Brampton, Ont., mayor received $100,000 fine. Former federal Conservative leadership candidate Patrick Brown has been fined by the party for issues around financing irregularities, according to a senior party source. The source said that Brown — who was recently re-elected mayor of Brampton, Ont. — was told last week he would be fined a total of $100,000, or the total amount of the compliance deposit each candidate had to submit to the party to enter the leadership race. The party ejected Brown from the leadership race just two months before it was set to choose its next leader. At the time the party cited "serious allegations of wrongdoing" related to financing rules, which it referred to the commissioner of Canada Elections. The party said at the time that the decision to disqualify Brown was based on a recommendation from its chief returning officer. A dispute resolution appeals committee had to decide whether the officer possessed the evidence to recommend his removal. It said evidence included allegations that Brown allowed more than 500 non-compliant membership sales. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/patrick-brown-fined-conservative-party-1.6631046
Change Laws that Govern Federal Politicians
sillywalker posted a topic in Federal PoliticsWe the people of Canada DEMAND change in Government. We the people of Canada demand that the government that belongs to us and to whom we lend our democratic power to lead this country and to sit in opposition, change the laws that govern the behaviour of those politicians that take the oath of office. We are tired of the way that parties spend our hard-earned tax dollars on things that do not benefit this country. We are tired of the lies by all parties and we are tired of the personal agendas that you all bring into the house of commons instead of working toward the common goal of bettering this great nation. We are tired of the ethics violations, the misappropriation of money that does not belong to you and the way you spend on other countries while here in Canada our own go without. We are tired of the way Canadians are left out in the cold as soon as you take office and the opposition all of a sudden becomes sanctimonious in the way they say they want to save us. We are tired of the Pandering politicians on all sides. We are tired of the insider trading. We are tired of the wealthy being the ones that you listen to and not us average Canadians because in fact most of you have never worked a solid day in your life. We are Tired of the way that the people we elect as our Members of Parliament stop speaking for us the moment they are told to tow the party line. We are tired of the way the country gets ignored because as soon as you take power and the house sits you then worry about the next election rather than worrying about us the people. We demand change and we have some changes we want: 1. We the people demand, not ask, that recall be brought into law. 2. We the people demand that restricted parliamentary privilege be restricted to times that it is a benefit to the country not the politicians. 3. We demand that under conditions that regular Canadians would lose their jobs that the same apply to politicians in the same fast manor. 4. We demand that if fired there is an end of your pension no if ands or buts. 5. We demand that any financial penalties that politicians receive be proportional to the wages they earn so as to sting them as we the citizens get stung. 6.We the people demand that when a politician ends his term that he not use political influence to enrich himself or family, if they do they are to be prosecuted. 7. We demand that all monies earned by the writing of books or speaking engagements by any serving politician or politician that has served (because they were only in that position to serve the country) should be paid to charity. 8. We demand that any politician caught deliberately lying to the citizens of this country be removed from office immediately. 9. We demand that any politician working against the people of this country be removed from office and if deemed serious enough be charged in a court of law. These demands are put before you by citizens of all political parties, All genders and all races. We the citizens of Canada have had enough of governments dividing the peoples and spending recklessly so as to force our taxes to a level that makes it hard to support our families.
