Legislation activity in Manitoba

07Jul11

My new post on Slaw is up. I went very traditional and easy, and reviewed the latest flurry of activity in the Manitoba legislature. I consider Slaw an opportunity for me to inform the rest of the country what’s happening here, as you sure don’t get it from the “national” press!

Following legislation is a very important part of working in a law library. Some of these new statutes are rather controversial, and around my firm there is talk about “making law by regulation”, i.e. passing a law that gives the overall structure, and then putting all the details in the regulations, which don’t require debate and voting by the legislature. And with an election coming up, all activity is scrutinized even more closely.
