CABA Submits Letter Opposing Bill 115 with the Attorney General of Ontario
– For Immediate Release –
New York, NY, June 6, 2019: The Canadian American Bar Association (CABA) has joined the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce in voicing opposition to Bill 115 presently awaiting passage by the Ontario legislature. Bill 115 purports to unilaterally terminate a duly concluded contract between the Ontario government and several foreign private parties involved with The Beer Store without provision for compensation and while denying them all rights of action and remedies in legal proceedings. In a letter submitted to the Ontario Attorney General, CABA states its concerns that Bill 115 risks eroding public confidence in the rule of law, discouraging U.S. investment in Canada, and placing a chill on cross-border trade.
