Bc dating laws
Both true, and these are just some of Canada's more weird and wacky laws, which are highlighted in honour of our 150th birthday — because hey, you might be breaking the law without even knowing it!
In Canada, some jurisdictions have passed legislation fixing election dates, so that elections occur on a more regular cycle (usually every four years) and the date of a forthcoming election is publicly known.
When introducing the legislation, Harper stated that "fixed election dates prevent governments from calling snap elections for short-term political advantage.
During the legislative process, the Liberal-dominated Senate added an amendment listing conditions under which an election date could be modified, in order to avoid clashes with religious holidays, municipal elections, and referenda, but the House of Commons, led by Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Conservatives, rejected the amendment and the Senate did not pursue it.In 2007, Pat Binns' Progressive Conservatives (PCs) introduced a bill for fixed election dates, but an election was called before the bill could pass the legislature.
