moved for leave to introduce Bill C-446, an act to amend the Corrections and Conditional Release Act (blood samples).

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise today to introduce my private member's bill.

On the authorization of a warrant and on the testimony of a staff member of a correctional centre for justice, the bill would allow the taking of samples of blood from an inmate in order to determine whether the person carries a designated virus, namely hepatitis B, hepatitis C or HIV, for the health and well-being of Canada's dedicated correctional staff.
