One more update.

Quote:
The Senate has adjourned until Tuesday, March 20, 2007


C-288, still at the second reading stage. So that will be more than one month for sure.

The order paper has been updated.
Quote:
February 20, 2007—Resuming debate on the motion of the Honourable Senator Mitchell, seconded by the Honourable Senator Trenholme Counsell, for the second reading of Bill C-288, An Act to ensure Canada meets its global climate change obligations under the Kyoto Protocol.

And on the motion in amendment of the Honourable Senator Tkachuk, seconded by the Honourable Senator Comeau, that Bill C-288 be not now read a second time, but that the subject-matter thereof be concurrently referred to the Standing Senate Committee on Banking, Trade and Commerce and the Standing Senate Committee on Energy, the Environment and Natural Resources;

That the committees report back no later than December 31, 2007; and

That the Order to resume debate on the motion for the second reading of the bill not appear on the Order Paper and Notice Paper until such time as both committees have reported on the subject matter of the bill.—(Honourable Senator Murray, P.C.)

http://www.parl.gc.ca/39/1/par...../ord-E.htm

So it is looking like 11 months to a year at the least before we hear about this thing again.

bad poll, within a year we could see an election, the results of the comming election will determine if Kyoto gets passed or not.

Bill C-288 is now law.

Updated 22June2007 @ 1638 EDT: In response to the two posts below, yes - it has been given Royal Assent and comes into force immediately. The amendment(s) referred to below were part of a month-long filibustering attempt by the Tory Senators to prevent the Bill from becoming law.

So it has received royal assent then? Or are people once again jumping the gun in irrational fear?

PS. Has it even passed third reading in the Senate yet? Senators don't work on Friday, it is a travel day or something, and the Parliament website has it at third reading in the Senate stage still. Why does this bill have the power to make people act so irrationally?

Another question, has the Senate amended the bill? If they have, then it has to go back before the Commons for approval. Both houses must agree on the same version of the bill. Again I say, this is not going to become law.

PS. The order paper: http://www.parl.gc.ca/39/1/par...../ord-e.htm

And on the motion in amendment of the Honourable Senator Murray, P.C., seconded by the Honourable Senator Spivak, that Bill C-288 be not now read a third time but that it be amended, on page 10, by adding after line 33 the following:

"COMING INTO FORCE

12. This Act comes into force on a day to be fixed by order of the Governor in Council.''.—(Honourable Senator Carstairs, P.C.)

So there has been at least one attempt to amend the bill.

An absolutely meaningless ammendment, designed to delay passage of the bill in the manner you've specified. I'm not suprised that its from a 'PC' Senator - now the Liberals can claim it wasn't their ammendment. I wonder what kind of deal Counsell is getting for his cooperation?
