Mr. Speaker, as my colleague knows, I personally, the Conservative Party, and the government are against torture.
When I talk about the tools needed, I am talking about the measures needed to intervene. For instance, when a police force knows that a terrorist attack is being planned on Canadian soil or elsewhere, it must be able to intervene and stop it. We did not have that before the Anti-terrorism Act. Our intelligence agencies now have the capacity to stop such threats.
My colleague can sleep better at night since the Anti-terrorism Act was passed, because the authorities can step in proactively and save lives.
