Not familiar with legislation in Canada..

How long until this gets passed and if it does when would the changes go into effect? When would background checks be for unlimited time? When would guns be reclassified?

Right now it's just a bill. It has go go through several readings and committees before the house passes it.

Then it goes to the senate for more readings and committees.

Normally it takes about a year for a bill to become law.

If the lieberals prorogue parliament before they're done with it, or the election gets called before it's passed, it's toilet paper and gets flushed. With even some minor delays by the CPC the clock may run out on this garbage.

Even if it becomes law, it has to be published in the Canada Gazette (which may take up to a month) and then allow enough reasonable time for the actual implementation, some of which might take another year, and some could start right away.

I see. I thought this was a quick process...like the bill would be law and implemented by next month.

I believe some of the proposed changes can be done by Order In Council .

This government has actually passed so few laws they don't realize how late they've left it.

Which changes? Does it mean it can be in effect, say, Monday?

Maybe it takes some extra time to make sure laws are gender neutral.

There are a couple of things in the new law that state they come into effect on the 30th of June 2018. If the bill is not passed, and receives Royal assent, how does that work? If the bill doesn't pass, then those dates can't be enforced. Or are they thinking they'll just ram it through, as one of their strategists suggest, so the Conservatives can't bring those pesky "experts" to the committee hearings...

It shows how fast they think they can ram it through. 2nd reading is Monday. They must not be planning on giving SECU much time with it. There are about 10 weeks of legislative time until summer.
