Liberal MP Scott Brison has stepped in to offer his June 6 slot for further debate on Dan Albas’s Bill C-311. The bill could have died but will see the light of day next week.
It will be interesting to see who debates it or whether it will get all party support before going to the senate.
If the one-clause bill makes it through the Senate before the chamber rises at the end of June, it becomes law right away. That would be just in time for the summer tourism season at Canadian wineries.
But the bill leaves the rule-making up to the provinces, so the laws will vary.
