Mr. Speaker, I appreciate that the hon. member is new to the file, but this legislation has been before Parliament for quite some time. We have listened to our provincial counterparts with respect to pre-trial detention, adult sentences, and deferred sentencing.
The bill targets a small group of out of control young people who are a danger to the public and a danger to themselves, as was identified in the Nunn report.
I hope the hon. member for once would get on board and support this important piece of legislation.
