Mr. Speaker, I wonder if the justice minister feels that mocking a legitimate question from the opposition is becoming, in particular on the eve of an election.
Murderer Karla Homolka has the right to a university education. Child killer Clifford Olson has the right to apply for early release. Criminals are demanding sex change operations, colour televisions and computers. And now a murderer in prison in New Brunswick is demanding the right to be transported to Nova Scotia every time he wants a conjugal visit with his wife who is imprisoned there for her part in the murder.
The government gives in to these demands while victims stand at the door begging. How can the minister deny victims reasonable rights while he continues to protect the rights of Clifford Olson and while doing nothing to stop rapists like Darren Ursel from walking free?
