Myron Thompson Canadian Alliance Wild Rose, AB

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-352, an act to amend the Corrections and Conditional Release Act.

Madam Speaker, the idea for the bill comes from people in various areas in Canada who believe that the parole system is very lenient in its conditions of release. They would like to see them tightened up, particularly in the area of those who are addicted to drugs. The bill would simply say that one condition of parole from a penitentiary would be that the person must be totally drug free, free from all addictions to drugs, before parole would be considered.
