Stopping Harassment and Abuse by Municipal Politicians Bill finally reaches the floor for debate

  • Legislative Review

— Blais urges all MPPs to vote in favour of Bill 10  to hold municipal leaders accountable —

“Surely everyone can agree that there are some actions so egregious, such as workplace violence and harassment, that would warrant losing your job,” says Blais. “This is a non-partisan issue, which I hope will pass so we can help stop this from happening, particularly to women who simply want to do their job free of harassment and violence.”

The Bill, if passed, would permit municipalities to direct the Integrity Commissioner to apply to the court to vacate a member’s seat for failing to comply with the municipalities workplace violence or harassment policies.
