Mr. Speaker, since I am not getting a straight answer I will change the subject.
In March, the House passed a bill on Supreme Court justices. A majority of the representatives elected by the people passed a bill and sent it to the Senate. The bill has been languishing there ever since. The Conservative senators refuse even to refer the bill to committee to allow people to discuss it. As the old adage goes, things come in threes.
Will Bill C-332 be the next victim of the Conservatives in the Senate?

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-332, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (review of parole ineligibility) and to amend other Acts in consequence.
Mr. Speaker, the bill would amend the Criminal Code to repeal section 745.6 of the act, often referred to as the faint hope clause, which allows a person sentenced to life imprisonment for high treason or murder to apply after 15 years for a reduction in parole ineligibility.
The bill also makes related amendments to the Criminal Code and amends certain other acts in consequence.
