The Canadian Senate continues to review the legislation to make Sable Island a National Park Reserve.

The status page for the legislation is at: http://www.parl.gc.ca/LegisInfo/BillDetails.aspx?Language=E&Mode=1&billId=5979323

The actual text of Bill S-15 is at: http://www.parl.gc.ca/HousePublications/Publication.aspx?Language=E&Mode=1&DocId=5979330&File=4

For insight into how the Senate is viewing this Act read a statement made by the Honourable Terry Mercer, representing the province of Nova Scotia and the Senatorial Division of Northend Halifax, and the responses of the Honourable Marjory LeBreton (Leader of the Government) – both of whom support the Bill in spite of their political differences: http://www.parl.gc.ca/Content/Sen/Chamber/411/Debates/145db_2013-03-19-e.htm#35
