Mr. Speaker, Canadians are concerned about crime, particularly repeat offenders who commit serious violent or sexual offences.
Torontonians are particularly concerned about a series of sexual assaults allegedly committed by a young offender. Recently, women in the Christie Pits neighbourhood in downtown Toronto have been victimized by seemingly random sexual assaults. This is unacceptable to me and to the government. Hard-working, law-abiding Canadians should not have to live in fear in their own communities.
Could the Minister of Justice please update the House about the government's latest efforts to address Canada's most violent and repeat offenders?
