moved for leave to introduce Bill C-292, an act to amend the Criminal Code (breach of a conditional sentence order).
Mr. Speaker, the bill is aimed specifically at amending section 742.6(9) of the Criminal Code which deals with an offender who has breached a conditional sentence without reasonable excuse. The enactment would enable the court's option of taking no action to be removed and would require the court, in certain circumstances, to terminate the conditional sentence order that the sentence may be served in custody. As a result, section 742.7(2) of the act would also be amended to make it necessary for the consequential change within that reference.
It is once more an attempt to pre-empt the government's inaction on this issue of conditional sentences.
