moved for leave to introduce Bill C-223, an act to amend the Criminal Code (judicial review).

Mr. Speaker, I rise today to introduce my private member's bill to amend section 745.6 of the Criminal Code. This section, the so-called faint hope clause, allows those convicted of life in prison without eligibility of parole for 25 years to use a legislated back door and apply after only 15 years. Some 82% of those applicants are successful. Murderers are walking on our streets early as a result.

My amendment would increase the period for judicial review from 15 years to 100 years. This would effectively eliminate this ill-considered and insulting law.

It is time we stopped obstructing justice and started obstructing this terrible criminal loop-hole.

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to introduce a bill amending the Canada Labour Code and banning the use of scabs.

It is high time that workers were given the opportunity to negotiate in a fair and equitable manner. It is also high time that conflicts such as the one at Cargill for the last 30 months and at Vidéotron for the last five months were ended so that both parties can get their fair share.

I hope that all members of this House will vote in favour in this bill.
