Electoral reform, Oral questions,

Questions orales, Réforme électorale,

Mr. Speaker, as a member of the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs, I am proud of the important work we have done on modernizing our election laws.

As part of our study of the Chief Electoral Officer's report following the 2015 election, we released a series of reports containing numerous recommendations. We are pleased to have completed our clause-by-clause study of Bill C-76 and to see that the bill will be sent back to the House of Commons this week.

Could the Prime Minister tell the House about the measures our government is taking to follow through on our commitment to strengthen the openness and fairness of Canada's democratic institutions?

Monsieur le Président, en tant que membre du Comité permanent de la procédure et des affaires de la Chambre, je suis fier de l'important travail accompli sur la question de la modernisation de notre loi électorale.

Dans le cadre de l'étude sur le rapport du directeur général des élections, à la suite des élections de 2015, nous avons publié plusieurs rapports contenant énormément de recommandations. Nous sommes heureux d'avoir terminé l'étude article par article du projet de loi C-76 et de voir que ce dernier sera renvoyé à la Chambre des communes cette semaine.

Le premier ministre peut-il informer la Chambre des mesures que prend notre gouvernement pour donner suite à notre engagement de renforcer l'ouverture et l'équité des institutions démocratiques du Canada?
