HOUSE OF COMMONS OF CANADA


An Act to amend the Parliament of Canada Act (members who cross the floor)

SUMMARY
This enactment provides that a memberís seat in the House of Commons will be vacated and a by-election called for that seat if the member, having been elected to the House as a member of a political party or as an independent, changes parties or becomes a member of a party, as the case may be. A memberís seat will not be vacated if the member, having been elected as a member of a political party, chooses to sit as an independent.


Her Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate and House of Commons of Canada, enacts as follows:

CHANGE OF POLITICAL AFFILIATION
27.1 (1) Any person holding a seat in the House of Commons who becomes a member of a registered party as defined in subsection 2(1) of the Canada Elections Act is deemed to have vacated the seat and ceases to be a member of the House if, in the last election, the person was endorsed by another registered party or was not endorsed by a registered party.

(2) The leader of the registered party of which the person referred to in subsection (1) has become a member shall, without delay, notify the Speaker of the House of Commons in writing that the person is a member of that party.

(3) The Speaker of the House shall, on receipt of the notice referred to in subsection (2), address a warrant of the Speaker to the Chief Electoral Officer for the issue of a writ for the election of a member to fill the vacancy.

(4) If there is no Speaker of the House, if the Speaker is absent from Canada or if the member whose seat is vacated is the Speaker, the leader referred to in subsection (2) shall address the warrant, under the hand and seal of the leader, to the Chief Electoral Officer for the issue of a writ for the election of a member to fill the vacancy.

1. This Act comes into force on a day to be fixed by order of the Governor in Council.



Published under authority of the Speaker of the House of Commons

Mr. Speaker,
Can the member till me what he thinks is undemocratic about this bill, if a riding elected a Conservative and he switches parties to the Liberals.
