BC seeks to stem metal theft
Legislation has been proposed in BC that seeks to crack down on metal theft.
Introduced by Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General Shirley Bond, the legislation is the first of its kind in Canada and seeks to create a unified province-wide approach to the problem of metal theft over the patchwork of local laws currently targeting the problem. The legislation requires metal dealers to record details of transactions, including weight of the purchased metals and where the seller says they got the material. It also requires dealers to record each seller’s personal information and share this information daily with the police.
