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
- 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.
