Fin Donnelly NDP New Westminster—Coquitlam, BC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-521, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (means of communication for child luring).

Mr. Speaker, this bill makes it illegal for any Canadian citizen or permanent resident to lure a child outside the borders of Canada and makes prosecution possible here at home.

I feel, as Dawn Black felt, that these changes to the law are long overdue and I hope that my hon. colleagues will agree and choose to support this bill.
