moved for leave to introduce Bill C-424, an act to amend the Criminal Code (consecutive sentences).

Mr. Speaker, this bill is in response to the Inderjit Singh Reyat case, where somebody who was convicted of a violent crime did not receive consecutive sentencing, but rather received concurrent sentencing for being involved in the deaths of a number of people.

This bill calls for the changing of concurrent sentencing to consecutive sentencing for those who commit violent crimes, so that those who do commit violent crimes will be held accountable under law.
