Late Tory bills get short-notice hearing
A last-minute committee meeting was scheduled late Wednesday to hear two government bills tonight at the Manitoba legislature.
This morning, a notice was posted online for a 6 p.m. hearing concerning Bill 40 (Combative Sports Amendment Act) that would expand the Manitoba Combative Sports Commission’s mandate to include licensing and regulating amateur combative sports, in addition to professional combative sports. Bill 43 (Provincial Offences Amendment Act) would allow First Nations to enforce bylaws and collect fines.
No presenters have registered to offer input regarding either government bill.
