Province vowing to fix laws governing towns, cities
Paul-Erik Veel was quoted in the Toronto Star on July 19, 2015 on the complaints about the contradictions in the provincial laws that govern towns and cities.
...It is not difficult, at city halls across Ontario, to find complaints about loopholes and contradictions in the provincial laws that govern both towns and cities and the conduct of their candidates and elected officials.
..."It's sort of a sledgehammer," is how Toronto lawyer Paul-Erik Veel describes campaign finance rules in another act.
"It's very difficult to pick up, very difficult to get it moving, but when you finally do get it moving, it can only result in complete destruction. It's not a very nuanced approach."
