Today BC’s proposed Athletic Commissioner Act has passed Second Reading which means this Bill is one step closer to becoming law. I have previously discussed this new proposed law here.
You can click here and scroll down to section 1550 to read the Legislative debate about Bill 50. There appears to be little doubt that this Bill will become law as the Government has the necessary majority and even the opposition critic’s comments include the following positive remarks “You know, I somewhat applaud the government for going here with this bill, simply because in many ways it’s necessary.”
I will post a further update once this Bill passes Third Reading and receives Royal Assent (the final steps for a Bill to become a Law).
