TALL Luncheon Meeting Re Legislation Act, 2005

The Toronto Association of Law Libraries (TALL) is hosting a February 2, 2006, lunch meeting regarding Bill 14 in Ontario, which, if passed, would introduce the Legislation Act, 2005, which would have the consequence of making e-Laws official. Non-members of TALL are eligible to attend the meeting. The description of the meeting is as follows:

Bill 14, the Access to Justice Act, includes the Legislation Act, 2005 which, if passed, will make e-Laws an official source of law in the province. Join a panel from the Ministry of the Attorney General – John Gregory (Policy Division), Mariam Leitman (Office of Legislative Counsel) and Tamara Kuzyk (Office of Legislative Counsel), to discuss how we got to this ground-breaking legislation. The panel is very interested in feedback, so bring your questions and comments!

  1. I see the registration form has been inadvertantly put into the “Members Only” section of the website. This was unintended, and we will fix it ASAP. In the meantime, if any non-members would like the form, email me and I will forward it to you: connieblog@sympatico.ca .

    Cheers,

  2. Bill 14 provides limited administrative law protections, such as ensuring those that who determine whether complaints against Justices of the Peace will proceed to hearings, do not sit on those same hearing panels, while taking away this very protection from S. 49.21(2)(1) of the 1998 Law Society Amendment Act.
    Bill 14 offers human rights accommodations to justices of the peace needing them while removing all such protections from the 1998 Law Society Amendment Act, in essence any licencee can lose his or her licence for any failure (no matter how minor.)
    Bill 14 is a draconian, poorly conceived attempt by Law Society officials (curently sitting on a time bomb of statutory and common law breaches tantamount to public malfeasance, hidden LSAP decisions – the hidden 2000 Codina decision showing complaints were not authorized; the hidden Baker costs decision awarding $150,000 in costs and they are fearful of liability) who lack training and expertise in administrative law principles, to replace those required skills with a whip! The incompetent abusive parent always needs more whips!
