  Canadian Election Law & Policies
Elections Canada also provides a number of plain English overviews of the laws and policies governing the conduct of federal elections.
This law was challenged during the 2000 election, by Stephen Harper when he headed up the National Citizens Coalition, on the grounds that the law is an unconstitutional limit on the freedom of expression and of the voters' rights to be fully informed of all points of view.
However, the Supreme Court of Canada lifted the injunction on November 10, and the limits were in force during the rest of the campaign.

 Election Resources on the Internet: Federal Elections in Canada - Elections to the House of Commons
Although both the government and the National Assembly of Quebec rejected the agreements under which the Canada Act was passed and denounced the political legitimacy of the Constitution Act, 1982, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the province was legally bound by the Act.
The Parliament of Canada consists of a lower chamber, the House of Commons, whose members are directly elected by universal adult suffrage for a maximum term of five years, and an upper chamber, the Senate, whose members are appointed on a provincial basis and may hold office until they are 75 years of age.
Between 1962 and 1980, eight federal elections were held in Canada, five of which (1962, 1963, 1965, 1972 and 1979) resulted in minority governments, as no party won an absolute majority of seats in the House of Commons.

 For Immediate Release   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
We at Politics Canada believe that this apparent, massive violation of federal law by the media and other organizations proves our point: that the ban means one thing in the conventional media, which can easily comply, and quite another for many website operators who cannot effectively comply with the ban without shutting down their websites.
As well, we believe that Elections Canada may be actively investigating the Politics Canada website, while ignoring these many other sites that also appear to have violated the law, in exactly the same way, for largely the same reasons.
The maximum penalty for violating federal elections law is $5,000 or five years in prison, or $1,000 or one year in prison, depending on the type of offense.

Canada, according to Haiti-based independent journalist Kevin Pina, is "deeply involved" in planning for elections in Haiti, and is implementing "draconian rules" to make it mandatory to vote, denying non-voters access to social security or government services.
Pina says that it is impossible to have legitimate elections while the majority political party is being forced to hide in the woods, in fear for their lives.
Pina continues: "The role of Canada and the other countries in Haiti is to try to silence those voices, to prepare for the next election so that they can present to the world the facade that the page has been turned."
