moved for leave to introduce Bill C-410, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (sex crimes and violent crimes).

Mr. Speaker, again this is a bill very much in the public good aimed at amending the Criminal Code to preclude persons who have committed offences involving violence or sexual offences, which always include violence, from receiving conditional sentences under the Act. It is in keeping with the movement toward having a schedule list of offences for which conditional sentences would not apply.

I believe this is more than appropriate in the circumstances given the long lasting life sentence of victims in these circumstances.
