Mr. Speaker, I noticed that the member said that she would support life imprisonment for murder. I wonder whether she would enlighten the House on her definition of life imprisonment.
Florida, for example, has what is called a toe-tag sentence. In other words, if individuals commit a serious, multiple murder crime, they will be in prison until they go out on a slab with a tag on their toe identifying their body. It is life until natural death in prison.
In Canada right now it is 25 years nominally. In some cases prisoners can apply for early parole at 15 years. It is still a life sentence but only 25 years are actually served in jail.
I wonder what level of life imprisonment she would support for people who commit heinous crimes.
