C-45: Meet the new omnibus budget bill


Here is C-45, the second budget implementation bill, which was tabled in the House about 20 minutes ago.

As a pdf, it is 457-pages long.

Depending on the precise and final formatting, that would make this bill longer than C-38, the year’s first budget implementation act. At a combined 900 pages, that would be the second largest load of budget bills in the last 19 years: surpassed only by the two bills that were tabled in 2010 that combined for more than a thousand pages.

Here, for the sake of comparison, are the page counts for all budget implementation bills going back to 1994. If you add all the budget bills from 1994 through 2001 together at the time they received Royal Assent, they total 473 pages.

And here again is the rough guide to Bill C-38, which should answer a lot of the procedural and contextual questions you might have about C-45.

  1. ugh.

  2. Integrity, respect, democratic you may notice that these are not the values being used by the Harper Conservatives. Let the push back on all fronts begin. In response to repeated correspondence on the subject that large scale long term damage of our environment poses threats to national security. Prime Minster Correspondence office has informed me they have no record of my correspondence. Is someone tampering with correspondence from Canadians to the Prime Minister. Should large scale environmental damage or destruction be recognized as ecocide and subject to criminal prosecution. Harper claims to be tough on crime why is he and other political leaders avoiding the discussion on ecocide. Is this how a democracy is dismantled?
    Was the plundering of the east coast cod ecocide?
    is the plunder of fish stocks off of Africa ecocide
    Was the British petroleum toxic oil disaster ecocide ?
    Was sabotaging the development of electric vehicles in California ecocide?
    Was TransCanada Keystone XL agenda to build a pipeline over the Ogallala Aquifer ecocidal?
    Is the proposed mega quarry north of Toronto ecocide ?
