Mr. Speaker, Canadians are concerned about crime and keeping our streets and communities safe.
In the last election campaign, we promised Canadians that we would introduce harsher sentences for violent criminals in the first 100 days of this Parliament.
The safe streets and communities act will ensure jail time for sexual predators and drug dealers who target our children.
The opposition parties recently moved to adjourn Parliament rather than debate the legislation. Could the parliamentary secretary update the House as to the status of the safe streets and communities act?
