Mr. Speaker, the NDP has no credibility when it comes to speaking on behalf of victims. It has voted against victims several times in this place. It voted against the elimination of the faint hope clause for murderers and opposed the safe streets and communities act which would give a greater voice for victims in our justice system.
The NDP wants to silence victims, urging a well-known victims' advocate to stop speaking out about Canada's justice system.
Our government will keep bringing forward legislation that gives a voice to victims and that keeps our streets and communities safe for children and seniors.
Instead of pretending to support victims, the NDP should do the right thing for once and vote in favour of victims' rights, rather than against them.
