Mr. Speaker, I enjoyed my hon. colleague's comments. The member for Fundy Royal stated the issue very well.
I would appreciate hearing the member's comments on the Criminal Code section dealing with impaired driving, which does impose mandatory suspensions and, at certain points, mandatory prison terms or jail sentences.
I would also appreciate hearing his thoughts with respect to this bill in that in the impaired driving section there are increases in the sentences with subsequent offences. Obviously there is a sense of deterrence because of that. Then we have this bill, where, from the government's perspective, we do not wish to impose additional sentences.
Would the member give us his thoughts on the impaired driving section as opposed to this bill?
