Publication, Municipal Government, Larry Michell

Frontier senior fellow Larry Mitchell on reforming Canada’s antiquated municipal government legislation: Canadian municipal law is characterized by its prescriptive rules-based codes of compliance. These contrast starkly with other jurisdiction’s local government law.

Modern local government laws of other countries seek to facilitate best-management practice by setting outcomes rather than rules;
they construct a performance and service-delivery framework designed to effectively and efficiently meet the needs of local taxpayers and residents.

Good local government law promotes good local government.
