Library of Parliament Legislative Summary of the Improving Trade Within Canada Act

The Library of Parliament recently published a legislative summary of Bill C-14: An Act to amend the Agreement on Internal Trade Implementation Act and the Crown Liability and Proceedings Act:
"Bill C-14, An Act to amend the Agreement on Internal Trade Implementation Act and the Crown Liability and Proceedings Act (short title: Improving Trade Within Canada Act), was introduced in the House of Commons on 6 October 2011 by the Honourable Christian Paradis, Minister of Industry and Minister of State (Agriculture)."

"The bill modifies the Agreement on Internal Trade Implementation Act and the Crown Liability and Proceedings Act. In particular, the bill provides for the enforceability of orders made under the dispute-resolution process of the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT), specifically in relation to government-to-government disputes. The bill also changes the terminology in the Agreement on Internal Trade Implementation Act to make it consistent with the terminology in the AIT and to clarify the effect of any orders made under the Act. As well, the bill repeals a section of the Crown Liability and Proceedings Act regarding proceedings initiated under the Agreement on Internal Trade. A similar bill, C-57, was introduced in the 3rd Session of the 40th Parliament."
It is possible to follow the progress of the bill in the Canadian Parliament via the LEGISinfo website.
