An environmental inspection program lacking clearly defined parameters

Corps

In the opinion of Québec Ombudsperson Raymonde Saint-Germain, Bill 48 fails to clearly define the parameters governing the application of the government motor vehicle inspection program (vehicles 8 years old and over) introduced by the bill. It is also impossible to tell what impact the program will have on citizens. The Ombudsperson is therefore recommending that the Minister of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks clarify his intentions with regard to the parameters governing the program's application.

The Ombudsperson stated her position in a letter to the Chair of the Committee on Transportation and the Environment, which begins deliberating today.
