Mr. Speaker, all week we have been listening to the justice minister try to explain why he cannot enact the victims bill of rights. "We have already taken care of victims", he said. "It is a provincial jurisdiction", he said.
These excuses do not sit well with victims like Theresa McCuaig or Debbie Mahaffy. They say the only thing that is holding up the victims bill of rights is the minister's lack of political will.
Why will the justice minister not muster up the political will to bring forward the victims bill of rights and let the House pass it before the next election?
