Keith Martin Canadian Alliance Esquimalt—Juan de Fuca, BC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-343, an act to amend the Criminal Code (violent crimes).

Madam Speaker, the bill comes out of a desire to halt violent crimes and to protect society. It applies only to individuals who have been convicted on three separate occasions of a violent offence, for example murder, rape or sexual abuse.

A person who has demonstrated a wilful neglect for the basic respect of human life and human dignity will be met with an obligatory 25 year jail term.
