Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I do, along with all of our colleagues, want to commend Mr. Cooper on his great efforts in bringing light to this very important issue.
We heard some very compelling testimony from Madam Wynn with respect to what she suffered, and my heart goes out to her and others who have suffered at the hands of this issue. However, we, as legislators, often find ourselves in a very difficult position where we have to separate our emotions from something that would affect the country nationwide.
We heard testimony that this was an error or a mistake, and we can't legislate away mistakes. There has to be a robust solution to this. I am very much in favour of having a review of the whole bail system and seeing how we can improve it administratively, and how we can improve efficiencies.
Although the intention is very great and noble, I don't think this bill achieves the effect of reforming the bail system, so I too will be supporting the motion presented by Mr. Bittle.
