Mr. Speaker, I want to thank my colleague for his speech. I want to stick to the specifics for a moment.
In the bill, section 184.4, the section that is most contentious, talks about allowing certain officers, police officers if we narrow it down, to be involved in intercepting communications for the public good and public safety. However, this could have been avoided, as the member pointed out. As a matter of fact, Bill C-30 was an overarching bill. When the Conservatives brought it into this House, there was a public backlash. They pulled it off the table faster than one can say “jurisprudence”, and here we find ourselves with this bill at the very last minute.
I wonder if the member could comment on the process and how this has become how to amend laws at the direction of the Supreme Court, Monty Python style.
