Democratic Reform Minister Pierre Poilievre has launched an all-out attack on Canada’s chief elections watchdog.

He is accusing chief electoral officer Marc Mayrand of opposing the controversial, proposed overhaul of elections laws because he wants more power for himself, a bigger budget and less accountability.

Moreover, Poilievre says Mayrand is making “astounding,” “amazing” and untrue allegations as he grasps at straws to defeat Bill C-23, the so-called Fair Elections Act.
