“Candidates apologize for not auditing their election expenses”

CBC Hamilton reports on a meeting of the city’s election compliance audit committee that is looking into the expenses of several candidates and councilors: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/news/candidates-apologize-for-not-auditing-their-election-expenses-1.3144161

Two unsuccessful candidates failed to have their election expenses audited as required by the Municipal Elections Act (Ontario). At least one of these candidates is learning that it is prudent to retain an election lawyer to make sure that you have complied with all the requirements when you run for office.

Another meeting will be held on July 13th to address further complaints about election expenses of candidates.
