Here’s someone who speaks to the wider legal problems this legislation introduces to Canadian society:
As they say on the “Blowing Our Tax Dollars” blog:
“Get ready to be protected from ourselves!
As the Club of Rome stated…………”therefore man is the enemy”
Why hasn’t there been any media coverage of Bill C-36 and it’s predecessors?
From David Rockefeller “… it would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government …”….”
Senator Joseph Day addresses the question of “What do we do now?”:
It is with regret that I inform you that Bill C-36 was passed in the Senate chamber yesterday evening. Three standing votes were held on the matter, and each time the Conservative majority outnumbered us and won those votes. The Bill will now receive Royal assent, at which point it will become law.
Many of you will wonder what you can do next. My advice is that, come the next election, you do your best to remind fellow voters how the Conservatives abused their numbers in the Senate to pass flawed legislation. Only then will this Conservative government realize that the Senate’s role is to ensure that our laws and institutions serve all Canadian citizens, not just the interests of their political party.
Please let me take this time to thank you for your support. We fought hard to make sure your voices were heard. Despite our efforts, we were outnumbered in the end.
Senator Joseph A. Day, LL. M., P. Eng.
Believe it or not, there are actually some people rejoicing over the passage of this Bill. Here’s one example from The Sandbox Project:
“”The Canada Consumer Product Safety Act compliments The Sandbox Project’s goal of improving health outcomes with respect to injury prevention and we are pleased that it will soon become law,” said Dr. Kellie Leitch, paediatric orthopaedic surgeon and founder of The Sandbox Project. “We congratulate the Government of Canada for listening to the concerns of both parents and consumers and passing this critical bill to improve children’s well-being.”
Bill C-36 is designed to repeal and replace Part I of the Hazardous Products Act, creating a new system to regulate consumer products that pose a danger to human health and safety. Among other things the bill seeks to:
- Prohibit the manufacturing, importing, marketing or selling of any consumer products deemed or proven unsafe to human health or safety;
- Require industry to quickly inform the government when they discover one of their products is linked to a serious incident, death, or product safety issue;
- Require manufacturers or importers to provide test/study results on products when asked;
- Empower Health Canada to recall unreasonably dangerous consumer products; and
- Make it an offence to package or label consumer products that make false or deceptive health or safety claims….”
