moved for leave to introduce Bill C-426, an act to amend the Criminal Code.
Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to introduce this Private Members' Bill. The purpose of this enactment is to amend the Criminal Code to permit legitimate research into a jury's deliberative process with a view to improving the administration of justice.
This bill is being introduced as a result of the Guy Paul Morin inquiry and the recommendations coming out of that inquiry made by Judge Kaufman pertaining to jury deliberations.
