Bill 32 Amending Adult Guardianship Legislation on Hold

The Hon. M. De Jong announced in the British Columbia Legislative Assembly that Bill 32 will not be passed this session. See my previous post on Bill 32 here. He announced:

That schedule will see all of the estimates and bills presently on the order paper completed except for Bill 23, which is the Public Inquiry Act, and Bill 32, the Adult Guardianship And Personal Planning Statutes Act. Those bills obviously have been the subject of comments by stakeholders and interested parties, and the government believes it would be beneficial to hear further from those with views. Those two bills will not be forthcoming or proceeding this session.

The draft transcript is here.

Thank you to the Canadian Centre for Elder Law Studies for reporting on this development.
