Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the member for her question and her hard work on the file.
I am very pleased to inform the House that yesterday Bill C-59, abolishing accelerated parole, received royal assent.
However the news is not all good. Shockingly, each and every Liberal senator stood in their place and voted to put car thieves, drug dealers and white collar fraudsters like Earl Jones back on the street early. We do not expect the Liberal member for Lac-Saint-Louis to help, but we sure could count on Senator Larry Smith.
