Thanks very much. I'll make a brief comment and then pass the rest of my time to Ms. Khalid.
I think this is a really important point to pick up on regarding hybrid offences. There are a lot of hybrid offences in the code now. The crowns use their discretion every day to make a decision about whether to elect to proceed summarily or by way of indictment.
Unfortunately, I think there is misinformation out there about the fact that this is something new, that summary offences are a way to basically get off with just a fine. I want to put to rest that notion, because it's mis-characterizing the good work that crowns do every day in using their discretion to make these elections. I note that there are plenty of hybrid offences on things that can range in seriousness, such as sexual assault. It's really important that we use precise language when we're talking about the work that the crowns do to not mislead people into thinking that this is an option that the accused has to make.
I would now like to give my time to Ms. Khalid for her question.
