Paul Szabo Mississauga South, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-445, an act respecting the provision of compensation to public safety officers who lost their lives while on duty.

Mr. Speaker, so dramatically shown on September 11, 2001, police officers and firefighters rush in to help while others flee for safety and when one of them loses their life in the line of duty, we all mourn that loss.

Accordingly, this bill seeks to establish a public safety officers compensation fund for the benefit of families of public safety officers who are killed in the line of duty.

I therefore look forward to working with all hon. colleagues to demonstrate the esteem in which all Canadians hold our public safety officers.
