A bill to combat organ trafficking was presented for second reading in the House of Commons on May 13, with MPs saying they’re in agreement with the bill, and Liberals asking that it be voted on next week to advance it to the next stage.
“My grandfather had this expression ‘not to gild the lily,’ that is, when something is already beautiful there’s no need to further dress it up. I think we already have a consensus, and I’m looking forward to seeing this bill finally move into law,” said bill sponsor Conservative MP Garnett Genuis.
Senate Bill S-223, which has already passed through the Senate, completing first reading in the House on Dec. 16. Similar proposed legislation has been introduced in past parliamentary sessions as private member’s bills, but never passed into law before the sessions ended due to upcoming elections.
