Submission regarding Bill 132: Better for People, Smarter for Business Act
Nov 27, 2019
Bill 132, government’s most recent omnibus bill, focussed on cutting red tape. It included over 80 proposed action items, affecting 14 different Ontario Ministries. The CFFO focused concerns on two issues: first, proposed changes to the Aggregate Resources Act will increase the ability of aggregates companies to operate and diminish the power of municipalities to establish oversight; second, the introduction of the Line Fences Repeal Act will download dispute resolution to municipalities, potentially increasing cost and confusion.
