Mr. Speaker, since 2006, our government has introduced more than 30 tough-on-crime measures.
Through these measures, we have made significant accomplishments in three key areas: tackling crime by holding violent criminals accountable for those crimes, giving victims of crime a stronger voice, and increasing the efficiency of the justice system.
As promised in the 2013 Speech from the Throne, this week we further built upon this success with the introduction of the life means life act. This legislation will ensure that those convicted of the most heinous murders will breathe their last breath behind bars. Providing for life sentences without parole is essential to express society's denunciation of the worst criminals.
Canadians knows that our government will always put the rights of victims before the rights of criminals.
