Flaherty’s Budget Bill Surprises

Jim Flaherty claimed today that there were “no surprises” in his Omnibus Bill. Let’s have a look at few things that jump out:

  • There is no mention of the Navigable Waters Act changes in the Budget document from March
    • The Hazardous Materials Information Review Commission is eliminated
      • Changes to judicial salaries in the Judges Act
      • Flaherty’s Budget Bill Surprises

        • Changes to the Bretton Woods Act
          • Amending the Indian Act
          • And that’s just a beginning. In the coming days and weeks the NDP will be holding the Conservatives to account.
