Myron Thompson Conservative Wild Rose, AB

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-327, an act to amend the Criminal Code (bail for persons charged with violent offences), the Extradition Act and the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the police agencies throughout the country I am pleased to introduce this bill that would amend the Criminal Code so that people who are arrested and charged with violent offences not be eligible for bail, as there are far too many incidents taking place after bail that could have been prevented had they been detained.

I have the support of the police departments across the country on the bill and I am pleased to introduce it on their behalf today.
