This is from the published bill. The Library of Parliament often publishes better independent summaries.

This enactment amends the Criminal Code to add the offence of luring a child to the offences for which Canadian citizens or permanent residents may be prosecuted in Canada even if committed outside Canada.

Fin Donnelly New Westminster—Coquitlam, BC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-212, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (luring a child outside Canada).

Mr. Speaker, I rise again today to re-introduce legislation to strengthen the laws to protect children against child luring and abuse.

The legislation would make it illegal for any Canadian citizen or permanent resident to lure a child outside the borders of Canada.

The bill, if passed, would close a loophole in the Criminal Code. It would also make prosecution possible here at home.

I encourage all members of this House to support this bill.
