Liberal backbencher Lorne Mayencourt wants you to be able to say your sorry. In an interview with Public Eye, Mr. Mayencourt said he's working on drafting The Apology Act for introduction during the current legislative sesson. If passed, the bill would allow British Columbians to apologize to a grieved party without worrying about admitting guilt or liability - as is currently the case.
"Oftentimes. I think that individuals who have been wronged are just really looking for an acknowledgement of that," explained Mr. Mayencourt. "And that acknowledgement can change the tone of how people deal with one another. And it might result in a speedier resolution of very important issues for people."
Mr. Mayencourt is now for drafting newsworthy private members bills, having been the driving force behind the government's safe streets legislation and the soon-to-be re-introduced Safe Schools Act. A version of this article was originally published in today's edition of 24 hours.
