Commissioner of Canada Elections

COMPLIANCE AGREEMENT

Statement of the Contracting Party

I, Bryan Richard Vanderkruk (hereinafter referred to as the Contracting Party), of the City of Hamilton, in the Province of Ontario, acknowledge that section 7 of the Canada Elections Act (the “Act”) prohibits an elector who has voted at an election from requesting a second ballot for the same election.

I recognize my responsibility for acts that could constitute an offence under section 7 of the Act.

I requested a second ballot on polling day of the federal general election held on May 2, 2011, in the Electoral District of Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale (ED 35003) in the Province of Ontario. I had already voted at the same election on April 23, 2011, at the advance poll, in the Electoral District of Hamilton Centre (ED 35031), in the Province of Ontario.

I am aware of the prohibition against requesting a second ballot after having voted at the same federal election.

I sincerely regret having requested a second ballot, an act that could constitute an offence under the Act, and I appreciate the gravity of my actions and their effects on the integrity of the electoral process.

Agreement

The Contracting Party acknowledges and accepts responsibility for these acts.

The Contracting Party acknowledges that the Commissioner has advised him of his right to be represented by counsel and that he has had the opportunity to obtain counsel.

The Contracting Party understands that this acknowledgement of non-compliance does not constitute a guilty plea in the criminal sense and that no record of conviction is created as a result of admitting responsibility for the activity that could constitute an offence.

The Contracting Party consents to the publication of this Compliance Agreement in the Canada Gazette and on the Commissioner’s Web site in accordance with the provisions of section 521 of the Act.

The Commissioner accepts and has taken into account the statements and admissions of the Contracting Party.

Signed by the Contracting Party Bryan Richard Vanderkruk,
in the City of Hamilton,
this 16th day of October, 2014.
