Forget it, I'm not fighting this Vbulletin copy/paste issue crap anymore.

So, the new federal budget doesn't specifically allocate funding for the enforcement of the AHRA...I get it.
BUT, the legislation itself remains law. Budgets don't determine legality.
I haven't scoured through the budget as presented...i doubt it specifically allocates funding for the enforcement of the myriad of other laws that are parts of our Criminal Code...however I'm sure it's still illegal to rob a bank (for example).
It might be short sighted of me, and I'd love to hear what others think about this...but I'm not seeing how this is going to change much about how surrogacies are being conducted in Canada ?

The current system is unenforceable so maybe they won't even bother...Jenn is correct that this doesn't invalidate the existing law. I can't think of any serious challenges to AHRA other than the SCC reference case and maybe Pratten v BC. Anyhow, Chaoulli v Quebec shows that even a legal victory on a healthcare issue doesn't mean things will changes in a hurry. The government knows that when the system fails, people will cross the border rather than challenge it. At least, those who can afford to....
