Greens face imminent deregistration – Update


Chief Electoral Officer Christine McCulloch’s annual report has been posted, and it confirms our report last week that she has initiated deregistration proceedings against the Green Party for failure to comply with financial disclosure laws.

As the chart above shows, the failure appears to be complete across the board: No audited financial statements, no public access thereto, and no copies or accounting of tax receipts. The Green Party of Nova Scotia received $133,469.90 in public financing last year.

McCulloch’s report doesn’t say when deregistration will take effect, but over the weekend  party officials told contrarian they had until July 17 to avoid losing official party status.
