Daryl Kramp Prince Edward—Hastings, ON
moved for leave to introduce Bill C-207, An Act to amend the Canada Evidence Act (interpretation of numerical dates).
Mr. Speaker, legal documents sometimes state the day, the month and the year, other times the year, the month and the day, and sometimes the month, the day and the year. We need to be consistent and that is why I am honoured to stand in Parliament to reintroduce my private member's bill to amend the Canada Evidence Act. This bill would amend the Canada Evidence Act to direct courts on how to interpret a numeric date that is in dispute.
