moved for leave to introduce Bill C-455, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (blood alcohol content).
Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague, the member for Regina—Qu'Appelle, for seconding the bill.
Since the passing of our friend, a member of this House, Chuck Cadman, this is the first opportunity to introduce a Chuck Cadman bill. Chuck had worked for years to see that the impaired level for alcohol be lowered from .08 to .05. We have endorsements from Chuck's family, from police chiefs across the country and from MADD Canada.
This is a good bill and it honours our friend.
