moved for leave to introduce Bill C-248, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (sex crimes and violent crimes).
Mr. Speaker, one of the key commitments of our government is to strengthen our criminal justice system. This bill, entitled an act to amend the Criminal Code (sex crimes and violent crimes), would do exactly that by amending the Criminal Code to preclude persons who commit sex offences and offences involving violence from receiving conditional sentences under that code.
It is imperative that this bill pass. I encourage all members of the House to support it.
