Bill Buholzer has completed a new edition of his guide to local government laws, which CLEBC has released under the title Local Government: A British Columbia Legal Handbook. Bill is well known as an author and lawyer; this guide has always attracted a wide audience in the legal and local government communities

Local Government: A British Columbia Legal Handbook provides an accessible, topic-by-topic review of how the Local Government Act and the Charter work with other legislation to govern each aspect of local government law, and offers insights into how the courts of British Columbia and other Canadian "broad municipal powers" jurisdictions view local government laws.

Highlights of the 2017 Update

  • the revised version of the Local Government Act, with many hundreds of references updated throughout the book

  • key practice developments, such as the introduction of the Building Act, the Municipal Replotting Act, and pending vacay tax

  • significant  new court decision, including decisions on local government jurisdiction (e.g., regulation of municipal parks, blasting prohibitions, etc.); notice of actions (e.g., breach of conflict of interest rules, remedial actions, etc.); marihuana dispensary and business licensing regulation; and removal of encroachments on highways
