Elections Canada dismisses complaints against Trudeau minister without interviewing him

The complainants made to Elections Canada over the Trudeau Liberal's campaign fundraiser in New York has been dismissed as the agency "found no information" that suggested members of the party broke any rules.

This decision comes in spite of the fact that Elections Canada failed to interview the organizing Liberal minister, Marc Miller, nor anyone that attended the glitzy, New York party, according to Blacklock's.

Elections Canada said that they "conducted a thorough review of this matter," yet questions may be asked about how rigorous this investigation could have been without the participation of Miller or any of the party's guests.

Miller flew to New York in October at the height of the 2019 election campaign, spending $690 on flights; $262 in taxi travel and $870 on drinks.

Miller, throughout this proto-scandal, has declined interviews with the media. He did, however, publicly release his receipts—saying that it "was a modest fundraiser with Canadian citizens."

Even without interviewing Miller, the Election Commissioner said that they were content with the minister's explanation.

"We found no information to suggest the individuals who made contributions to Mr. Miller’s campaign through the association were not Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada."
