Bill 66 and All That

I have been putting off writing about Bill 66, the proposed Restoring Ontario's Competitiveness Act.[1]

As OHA+M is a blog on heritage policy, it seemed impossible to ignore a major legislative foray by the new provincial government that could have major implications for Ontario’s cultural heritage protection regime and the resources it is designed to protect. The bill was introduced last December 6, the final day of the fall session.
