A provincial bill, spurred by the death of a Napanee teen almost a year ago and which had received all party support over two readings, will be re-tabled at Queen’s Park Today.
MPP Todd Smith introduced the Garrett’s Legacy Act last year, in memory of Garrett Mills, who was killed when an unanchored soccer net fell on him at a Napanee park.
Smith says the order sheet of bills was wiped clean when the legislature was prorogued in February and he’s re-introducing the bill today in the hopes of having it passed before the summer election.
Smith adds it’s good timing to bring the bill back to the table, as we near the anniversary of Garrett’s death and the start of the spring and summer sports season.
Garrett Mills, who was a student at Napanee District Secondary School, was just 15 years old when he was killed by the falling net, on May 12, 2017.
