Conservatives to end NDP’s committee filibuster, Mayrand expected to testify on elections overhaul bill

The government forced an inevitable end Tuesday to a lone NDP MP’s committee filibuster over contentious new election legislation, paving the way for long-awaited testimony on the government bill from Canada’s Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand.

Elections Canada’s said it will arrange a technical briefing for news media once Canada’s Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand’s appearance is scheduled before the House Affairs Committee, a signal the chief electoral officer’s comments on the government’s Fair Elections Act, Bill C-23, will be extensive.
