Two more contestations have been brought against ASFA executive candidates, one of which has resulted in sanctions.
Nick Cuillerier is ASFA’s chief electoral officer. At Thursday’s council meeting, he reported Tanya-Michelle Contente was banned from campaigning for three days for improper use of a mailing list. Contente is a candidate for VP internal.
Last Sunday, VP Finance candidate Pier-Luc Péloquin received the same sanction for a similar infraction. Under Annex A of ASFA’s electoral bylaws, these infractions are considered insider exploitation. A third contestation involving accusations of plagiarizing campaign points was dismissed.
Cuillerier noted that Annex A lacks rules regarding plagiarism. He said that is something he will review in his electoral report.
