Elections Canada also provides a number of plain English overviews of the laws and policies governing the conduct of federal elections.
The specific limits on candidates' election expenses for the 2006 election vary from riding to riding because they are based on the number of electors in a constituency.
This law was challenged during the 2000 election, by Stephen Harper when he headed up the National Citizens Coalition, on the grounds that the law is an unconstitutional limit on the freedom of expression and of the voters' rights to be fully informed of all points of view.
