Mr. Speaker, the Liberal government's Bill C-75 seeks to dramatically change the Criminal Code.
We support some of the measures in the bill, namely the one on domestic violence because it provides better protections for victims and is harsher on criminals. It makes perfect sense.
Here ends the praise, however. The Liberal government is seeking reduced sentences for those who commit heinous crimes, including participating in the activities of a terrorist group, municipal corruption, human trafficking, forced marriage, advocating genocide, as well as helping a prisoner of war to escape and causing bodily harm.
Canadians want justice to be served when a crime is committed. The Liberal government is acting recklessly in seeking reduced sentences for these crimes.
That is no surprise, however, coming from a government that is poised to welcome 60 former ISIS fighters and have them take poetry classes.
