Attorney General: Ontario to Enact Apology Act

From CTV:

TORONTO -- Legislation that would allow people to offer apologies without fear of having that used against them in court, making it easier to say sorry when a wrong has been committed, will be introduced in Ontario, the province said Tuesday.

"It's an issue that speaks to our wish, when something goes wrong, when we might be responsible for causing harm, our wish to say, 'I'm sorry, didn't mean it, and I'll try and make amends,' " said Attorney General Chris Bentley.

The Apology Act, if passed, will mean those apologies can't later be used against people, Bentley said.
