said by funny:So you're calling Moore a liar? He's said it too. Why would he lie about C11 getting Royal Assent? I know he lies a lot when spouting Music Canada propaganda, but he wouldn't lie to his masters! said by funny:
Royal Assent completes the enactment process. Bills may be given Royal Assent in two ways: by the Governor General or her deputy in a formal ceremony that takes place in the Senate before an assembly of both houses, or by written declaration. "Where royal assent is signified by written declaration, the Act is deemed to be assented to on the day on which the two Houses of Parliament have been notified of the declaration" (Royal Assent Act, S.C. 2002, c.15, s.5). When a bill receives Royal Assent it is given a chapter number for the Statutes of Canada.
you need both the senate and house to be notified at minimum which cant be done till the mp's house gets back form vacation.
geist should get his act together....( pardon the legal pun)
read this the governor general can give royal assent ONLY IN FRONT OF BOTH HOUSES WHICH CANT BE DONE
the primary house of members of parliament went on vacation before the senate gave third reading.
ergo all the bills UNLESS it states in the bill that on third reading auto grants assent which this bill doesnt then you need to do that..
if the governor general is saying he can assent bills without the pressence of parliament we have another illegal act by a conservative cronie.....
again royal assent in front a both houses which cant be done or notice to both houses which cant be done either until the mps get back form vacation
good lord shame on a lawyer geist for not pointing out this aspect of how bills are made statues of .....ugh and hes a lawyer?
