Mr. Speaker, the progress of Canada's children in the millennium report of January 2000 estimated that there are 100 child sex trade offences every day in the City of Vancouver.
The City of Coquitlam recently passed a resolution that calls on the Liberal government to:
--ensure the right of children to be free of adult sexual exploitation by amending the Criminal Code to state that no adult can engage in sexual activity with a child under 16 years of age.
The current age of consent is 14 years.
Will the government raise the age of consent from 14 years, yes or no?
