Ontario Passes Bill 197

They did it. No consultation. No discussion at standing committee. The Auditor General has noted the illegality of passing this bill without posting it to the Environmental Registry, but the bill exempts itself from that so its passage makes it quasi-legal. They did this before when cancelling the Green Energy Act. A court ruling in an action brought by Greenpeace stated that the government should adhere to the Environmental Bill of Rights, and establish protocols for if when and how they might do this again, while suggesting they should not. Remember when this government ran on accountability "for the people"?
