McGuinty Government Blocks Street Racing Bill

(Queen’s Park) Despite an eleventh hour appeal by Oak Ridges MPP Frank Klees to get the Street Racing Bill passed before the legislature recessed for the summer, the McGuinty government refused to enact the legislation.

Klees repeated his call for the government to include the Bill in the final package of Bills that are fast-tracked in the final hours of the legislative session.

"Going into the summer without this legislation passed is unconscionable" said Klees. “This was the government's opportunity to send a strong message that street racing will not be tolerated in this province, and that there will be serious consequences for those who risk innocent lives through this irresponsible activity".

Klees pointed out that there was plenty of time for the legislature to deal with the Bill.

“This clearly is not an important issue for the government. Rather than take the time to pass this legislation, they chose to shut down the legislature early,” said Klees, noting that there was still one and a half hours left on the clock when the government adjourned the legislature for the summer.
