moved for leave to introduce Bill C-352, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (peace officers).

Mr. Speaker, I thank the seconder for helping out on the bill.

This enactment would amend the Criminal Code to impose more severe penalties on a person or persons who assault peace officers and to eliminate the possibility of parole for those who murder peace officers.

We have to send a very strong message out to people who would inflict harm upon the people who protect us that that type of action will simply not be tolerated.

We believe the bill would go a long way in acting as a deterrent to protect the integrity of all peace officers in this country.
