Bill S-19

Senator Consiglio Di Nino (PC-ON) has introduced Bill S-19 in the Senate of Canada. The bill would enact the Scouts Canada Act. According to its official description,

This enactment consolidates and updates the statutes governing the corporation known as the Boy Scouts of Canada in order to reflect more accurately its current status in Canada.
