Industry committee  Until a couple of years ago we never would have considered that this might have been the cause of a fire. It's only been in the last two years that CSA has been doing training with fire marshals and so on. I investigated lots of arsons when I was in the field. If something

Justice committee  . And that's the challenge you have. We find this all time. Twenty years ago in this country, if you or somebody set fire to your car, that was not arson, but if somebody set fire to a stack of vegetables, that was arson. You say, how could that possibly be? Well, it's because the arson

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, a comment was made earlier by a member opposite about arson of a dwelling house being removed from Bill C-9. He should have been prepared when he came to the House. The truth is that it is taken out if someone is in their home when it is burnt down. However

Dave BattersConservative

Criminal Code   of Justice have publicly stated that arson was removed from Bill C-9. Is the member aware that arson of a dwelling house still remains within Bill C-9? What those members are saying to Canadians, almost every day, is, I could be polite and say that it is wrong, but it is misleading

Criminal Code   of arson, which is what the hon. member mentioned. We just saw in the news a few days ago where an arsonist in California set fires that took the lives of five firefighters.
