Carbon monoxide detectors to be mandatory in homes

The Ontario legislature recently passed a bill to make carbon monoxide detectors mandatory in homes across the province.

The Ontario legislature recently passed a bill to make carbon monoxide detectors mandatory in homes across the province. The legislature voted to support a private member’s bill requiring home owners to install carbon monoxide warning devices just as they would smoke detectors. The bill was introduced by MPP Ernie Hardeman, PC (Oxford), who has been advocating for this change for five years. It was named the Hawkins-Gignac Act after a Woodstock family of four died of carbon monoxide poisoning in their home. The bill passed unanimously in the legislature.
