An MPP just east of the Quinte region is heading a drive to have property rights for Ontario residents embedded in Canada’s constitution.
Lanark-Frontenac-Lenox and Addington Tory MPP Randy Hillier says the constitution doesn’t protect citizens against “financially ruinous and uncompensated restrictions on the use of their property.”
He says this leaves Ontario residents with no constitutional protection from unjust treatment.
Hillier has introduced a private bill in the legislature to amend Canada’s constitution. It would have to pass the Ontario legislature and the House of Commons in Ottawa, before it would become law.
