C-23.1 - Code of ethics and conduct of the Members of the National Assembly

Full text
72. If, in a specific case, the Ethics Commissioner finds that he or she cannot act in particular because of a conflict of interest situation or because his or her impartiality could be questioned, the Ethics Commissioner, after consulting with the Leaders of the authorized parties that are represented in the National Assembly, refers the case to an ad hoc commissioner.
The provisions applicable to the Ethics Commissioner apply, with the necessary modifications, to the ad hoc Commissioner, and any advisory opinion or report of the ad hoc Commissioner has the same effect as if it had been produced by the Ethics Commissioner.
