New Chairpersons:

As I am also new I went on the Internet to get started.

How does a bill become Law?

One of the jobs that I have as Legislation Chair is to monitor the legislation of all levels of government.

ROE vs WADE

As I am sure all of you are aware of the breaking news south of the border.  ROE vs WADE has been overturned.  There is so much available in a variety of media – TV, Radio and the Internet. 

If you put “roe versus wade and catholic” in google you will come across oodles of articles on the subject. 

   

The Catholic Register has an interesting article called Abortion Reality

https://www.catholicregister.org/columns/itemlist/tag/Roe%20vs%20Wade

   

There will be much discussion from both sides of the issue in the days to come. Take some time during the summer to listen and read. 

   

Bill 14, Time to Care Act (Long Term Care Homes Amendment, Minimum Standard of Daily Care), 2021

The Bill amends the Long Term Care Homes Act, 2007 so that a long-term care home will have to provide its residents with at least four hours a day of nursing and personal support services, averaged across residents.  The minimum hours may be increased by regulation. 

Status – First reading was back in October of 2021, Second Reading in November of 2021 and the order has been referred to a Standing Committee on Justice Policy on Nov 24 2021.

With each province weighing in on this debate this will also have plenty of articles to read over the summer.
