moved for leave to introduce Bill C-275, an act to amend the Criminal Code (recruitment of children and swarming).
Mr. Speaker, once again, this bill pertains to the criminal code in its current form. I introduced the bill in the last parliament.
It would essentially amend the criminal code to include a provision that would make it illegal to elicit or recruit children to commit criminal offences.
It would also put in place a new provision of the criminal code which would prohibit the offence of swarming, which is an offence that is sadly becoming increasingly prevalent in a number of communities around the country.
