Inquiry of the Chief Electoral Officer on certain revelations of the book entitles The Secrets of Option Canada - Mr. Bernard Grenier recommends several measures to make the referendum process more transparent

Québec, June 28, 2007 – Based on the evidence gathered during the inquiry that he made on certain revelations of the book entitled The Secrets of Option Canada, Commissioner of Inquiry Bernard Grenier proposes making Québec's referendum process more transparent, notably by putting in place a mechanism for disclosing expenses incurred before the referendum period, by increasing the responsibilities of the official agents of the Committees for the YES and for the NO, while making the agents more independent, and by better supervising partisan volunteer work. Mr. Grenier also suggests that the prior approval of the official agent of a national committee be required in order to broadcast in Québec during the referendum period an advertising campaign promoting or opposing the YES or NO option and funded by a government or a business.
