Mr. Speaker, impaired driving is the leading criminal cause of death in Canada.
Today, seconded by my colleague from British Columbia, I am proud to introduce a bill on impaired driving, a constructive and consensus-based bill to keep repeat offenders off our roads so they can never again take the lives of innocent victims like those whose families are with us today and who are mourning the loss of a loved one.
This bill includes measures to relieve pressure on the courts and speed up the process, as well as preventive measures to save people's lives.
I encourage my fellow parliamentarians to review the provisions in the bill and to vote unanimously to save lives and put an end to the scourge of impaired driving.
