Boating bill passes
Thursday, June 15, 2017

Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes MP Gord Brown made that quip on Tuesday after taking the helm of two boating-related business items on Parliament Hill.

On Monday, a bill that allows American boaters to cruise into Canadian waters without having to check in with Customs passed by a voice vote in the House of Commons.

 

Bill S-233, which originated in the Senate with Senator Bob Runciman, returned to the Red Chamber Tuesday for yet another vote, this time a minor amendment addressing a typo. It passed later that afternoon and is expected to receive Royal Assent and become law next week.
