Are there questions or comments?

All in favour?

Now we have Bill C-394.

Michel Bédard

Bill C-394 would amend the Criminal Code to make it an offence to recruit or invite a person to join a criminal organization.

This bill does not seem to concern a matter that is outside federal jurisdiction; it does not seem to clearly violate the provisions of the Constitution, including the Charter of Rights; no similar private member's bill has been voted on in the current session; no similar government bill is currently on the Order Paper or the Notice Paper.

Conservative

The Chair Harold Albrecht

Are there any questions or comments?

All in favour of allowing it to proceed? So ordered.

That brings us to the end of our list, and at this point I need someone to move that the subcommittee present a report listing those items which it has determined should not be designated non-votable, and recommending that they be considered by the House.

That's moved by Mr. Toone.

All in favour?

(Motion agreed to)

Thank you.

The meeting is adjourned.
