You might recall that our last e-LERT provided you with information on the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (the "CCPSA") and the potential costs that franchisors could face if this legislation became law. The CCPSA was amended at third reading in the Senate and was expected to become law in early 2010. As with all of the other pieces of pending legislation, the CCPSA is one of the many bills that died with the decision to prorogue the federal Parliament until March 3, 2010. Therefore, we’ll have to wait to see if and when this legislation, or something like it, is again proposed with the new session of government.
