Royal Assent

Now this sounds like something straight out of a storybook! Royal Assent is a procedure based on British tradition and one of the oldest parliamentary traditions that exists. The sovereign or their representative, the Governor General, gives the final stamp of approval on a bill in this ceremony after it has been approved by both the Sentate and the House of Commons. After this final step, the bill at hand becomes an Act of Parliament and implemented as law on whatever date has been decided upon.
