This is from the published bill. The Library of Parliament often publishes better independent summaries.

The purpose of this enactment is to authorize the publication of information relating to a young person who has been dealt with under the Youth Criminal Justice Act once that person has been charged as an adult under the Criminal Code with an indictable offence or an offence punishable on summary conviction.

David Tilson Conservative Dufferin—Caledon, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-282, An Act to amend the Youth Criminal Justice Act (publication of information).

Mr. Speaker, the Youth Criminal Justice Act now precludes the publication of information of young offenders to be released when they are sentenced or indicted, even after they have reached the age of 18. This bill, if passed, would allow for the publication of information about young offenders who are sentenced as adults over the age of 18.
