Local MPP Bill Walker says pressure from his caucus and industry has forced the Liberal government to scrap plans to repeal a provision that would have had negative repercussions on manufacturers in Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound and across the province.
The repeal of the so-called “industrial exception” would compel a manufacturer to hire an engineer to approve slight modifications to production machinery. Walker called the repeal an unnecessary regulatory burden on an industry that is recognized for its standards of excellence.
