Ladies and gentlemen, we're going to convene this meeting of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights.
I am pleased to welcome you all here today.
Today we will do our clause-by-clause review of Bill C-305, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (mischief).
I will be going through the amendments in the order they were received by line, so we're basically going to start from the top of the bill. We'll move down by line and then, if there are conflicting lines, I will give you guys the one that was received first and then let you know which ones are not receivable afterwards if we adopt the first amendment.
(On clause 1)
Our first amendment is NDP-1. If NDP-1 is adopted, CPC-1 cannot be moved as both amend the same lines. Basically, if NDP-1 is adopted, it would knock off Conservative-1.
I will let Mr. MacGregor put forward his amendment.
