Jean-Pierre Kingsley testifies on proposed election changes

Former chief electoral officer Jean-Pierre Kingsley will take questions today from MPs about the Conservative government's proposed changes to the Canada Elections Act.

CBCNews.ca is carrying the session live between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET.

The last time he spoke publicly about C-23 was the day the bill was tabled by Minister of State for Democratic Reform Pierre Poilievre. Kingsley gave the bill an A- grade that day.

Since then, critics have raised numerous problems about the 242-page bill, including concerns about the elimination of vouching as a way to prove a voter's identity.

The current head of Elections Canada, Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand, says the move will disenfranchise tens of thousands of people.
