Mr. Mike de Jong, Minister of Finance, British Columbia, Canada
Unveiled by Mr. de Jong, Minister of Finance of BC, Section 99 (1) (b) of the proposed Societies Act would allow well funded corporations to take any non-profit society to court for "carrying on activities that are detrimental to the public interest." This could potentially muzzle any less than rich non-profit societies from raising concerns on important issues relevant to the protection of our environment.
