moved for leave to introduce Bill C-208, an act to to amend the Crown Liability and Proceedings Act.
Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to reintroduce this bill.
Its purpose is to ensure that a person serving time in prison will not be able to sue the federal government or its employees under any federal legislation in respect of a claim arising while the person is under sentence.
If enacted, the bill would put an end to the practice of prisoners engaging in frivolous lawsuits against the federal government and their abuse of the legal system.
I urge all members in the House to give serious consideration to the bill.
