Pierre Poilievre, the minister of state for democratic reform, said in an interview with CBC radio broadcast Saturday that there will be a technical briefing this week for journalists to explain the new bill.
“It’s the Fair Elections Act,” Poilievre said. “And that’s why we’re having a technical briefing.”
Conservative sources expect the bill to reorganize of the branch of Elections Canada that investigates and prosecutes electoral crimes.
Poilievre did not respond to requests for more information on the weekend, but he sent several tweets about the bill.
“We will make it easier to vote and harder to break the law,” said one.
Another tweet promised that the government will “close loopholes to big money, and give law enforcement sharper teeth, a longer reach and a freer hand.”
