moved for leave to introduce Bill C-306, an act to amend the Criminal Code (age of consent).
Madam Speaker, the bill is once again another attempt to simply change the Criminal Code to raise the age of sexual consent from 14 to 16 years of age. There have been calls from every corner of Canada to protect our children from sexual abuse. The bill answers those calls by stating clearly that it is no longer acceptable for adults to prey on our 14 year old children.
