New Canadian law forces government to abolish an old regulation each time it creates

04.28.15 09:47 AM

Here’s an idea that should spread: forcing the federal government to do away with an old regulation every time it enacts a new one.

In Canada, it’s now the law. The Red Tape Reduction Act cleared its final hurdle last week, paving the way for a future in which new regulations, at least at the federal level, will be offset by the eradication of old ones at a 1:1 ratio.

Well, that’s the spirit of the law, at any rate. In practice, the new law does leave some wiggle room by framing the benefits of new regulations in terms of the projected costs they will incur, vis-ŕ-vis the old regulations they replace.

“Minister Tony Clement, who has championed the bill, can be proud that Canada is now the first country in the world to require that for every new regulation introduced one of equivalent burden must be removed,” reported the Financial Post.

“C-21 (the Red Tape Reduction Act)…essentially caps the cost of rules coming directly from regulations. Government rules can also come from legislation and policy so the one-for-one rule is not a cap on the cost of all government rules. Still, it is a very good start.”

The law received “near-unanimous support,” according to the Post, “with some opposition critics arguing that it doesn’t go far enough.”

Maybe Canada can export some of that common sense down south, along with the Moosehead beer and Tim Horton’s coffee.
