During the House of Commons question period on May 9th, Senator Marty Klyne asked the federal government about the fate of Bill S-241, the Jane Goodall Act. Bill S-241 is the most debated bill in second reading in the Senate this 44th Parliament, spanning over thirteen months with fifteen speeches and over four hours of debate. Senator Klyne emphasized that the bill “would fulfill two government election commitments reflected in Minister Guilbeault’s mandate letter to protect captive wild animals and to curb wild animal trafficking including elephant ivory and rhino horn.” He asked whether the government would move the bill to Committee or introduce their own version of the Jane Goodall Act to save it.
