No, because it takes a Provincial purview (the administration of law and justice) and awkwardly jams an unnecessary federal wrench in works that are gummed up purely at the municipal and/or provincial level. Even with such an infrastructure bill in place, it still only empowers police (though in ways we’re already sufficiently empowered). It doesn’t mandate us. Unless Parliament were to explicitly carve out new responsibilities to assign to the Mounties under the RCMP act, there’s no functional change to enforcement mandates or responsibilities.Even if pretty much everyone knows that existing laws…properly used/enforced…would address such situations, if there’s a consolidating/focused legislation package that splits the difference between “not using existing law” and “going full EA-tard,” I suspect many will see that as a decent mid-point solution to addressing the extremes of inaction/ultimate action.
It’s electoral theatre.
