Ontario Legislature Workin’ Overtime!

I don’t know about other jurisdictions, but a lot of significant changes to Ontario legislation are currently going through the Ontario Legislative Assembly. It is difficult to keep up, even for their own webmasters. At 11 a.m., I note they still haven’t posted changes from yesterday onto the website. If anyone is looking to track what happened to specific legislation the previous day, I highly recommend searching through the Votes and Proceedings (listed under “House Business” on the website).

One notable item: yesterday Bill 214, The Election Statute Law Amendment Act, 2005 had Third Reading and was passed according to the Votes and Proceedings for December 13, 2005. This legislation will, among other things, set a fixed date for Ontario elections. Bill 214 has not yet received Royal Assent.
