Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague for her question.
This is part of the Conservative tough on crime ideology, as even Mr. Duceppe used to call it.
The Conservatives are trying to find ways to convince people that they are really tough on crime, as we saw today with their omnibus crime bill that imposes obviously harsh measures, even though it will have no positive effect on a country in which the crime rate is already going down. It is their ideology that makes them say they are being tough on traffickers, yet they introduce a bill that does not target traffickers and instead targets refugees.
That is the triumph of ideology and image over substance.
