• We’ll probably have some of our own bureautrash go scavenging through the heaps of discarded Canadian legislation to see if we can use any of it here. Honestly, they’re like rag-pickers. Any little bit of influence they can find gets tucked away in a code section. We need a good house cleaning.

  • Funny you say that, because a lot of ‘modern’ Canadian legislation is based on a US model. Case in point: motor vehicle safety standards. The Canadians for the longest time from the early ’70’s followed US law almost slavishly. Much of their environmental and economics laws follow our, too. For a while, rather than being America’s hat, it was almost they were America’s parrot. It’s good to see that within the last decade or so they’ve started coming to their senses. A rather conservative government hasn’t hurt.
