With the previous edition of Executive Legislation being published 11 years ago, this new text has substantial updates and developments including Vavilov and subsequent cases, including case law on legislation addressing the pandemic.
The 6th edition of Bidding and Tendering has a number of updates on commentary and caselaw since its last edition over 5 years ago as well.
“This book begins with a threshold examination of what constitutes executive legislation (which embraces instruments most commonly referred to as “regulations”) in the context of a Westminster-based legal system that authorizes and delimits its effect as law. It then considers the constitutional framework for delegating executive legislative authority and the institutional (parliamentary and judicial) controls on the delegation and exercise of this authority. Next, it considers how executive legislation is made and operates within this context and provides a comparative law perspective ranging not only throughout Canada, but also across comparable Commonwealth jurisdictions (the UK, Australia and New Zealand).”
“The unique Canadian rules for bidding on construction projects – and just about everything else – have evolved rapidly ever since the Supreme Court of Canada’s landmark Ron Engineering decision in 1981. The decision has spawned well over a thousand lawsuits, with many more likely. Lawsuits can be very costly for both bidders and owners. Lengthy examinations for discovery and testimony before judges can add cost in time to cost in money. How do you avoid a lawsuit when preparing a call for bids or bidding on a project? The expert commentary in this text analyzes the current state of the law to assist you and your clients through the bidding and tendering process.”
