Canadian Alliance

Myron Thompson Canadian Alliance Wild Rose, AB

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-278, an act to amend the Criminal Code (dangerous offender).

Mr. Speaker, the bill would allow the people at an institution, which houses dangerous offenders, under an application of 753 of the Criminal Code, to deem people to be dangerous offenders before they are released from prison or for an offence while on parole, or mandatory supervision, or on the date the sentence expires.

Too many times frontline officers and parole officials have been warned and individuals should not be turned back to society since they are a danger to offend. The bill would prevent that from happening.
