Mr. Speaker, through you, I would like to welcome the hon. member for Skeena—Bulkley Valley to this place.
It is true that this legislation has been called for for a long time. After we were elected in 2015, we brought a robust number of bills to the public safety committee. The public safety minister at the time, Ralph Goodale, was introducing more legislation than was coming from any other department. He was fixing the previous national security framework in Bill C-59. We brought in Bill C-22 and we did introduce Bill C-98 to deal with the CBSA review agency. Unfortunately, the bill ran out of time in the Senate before it could be passed.
It is my hope that we can do this quickly and get it sent to committee and the Senate and finally get this review body in place.
