  • Spoke about Not Criminally Responsible Reform Act > Bill C-54—Time Allocation Motion

    Mr. Speaker, some of the comments that have been made would lead the public to believe the system has been radically changed because all of a sudden there has been a high-risk designation. The member previous asked a question about the timeliness of this and the failure to bring this through quickly resulting in greater victimization, greater harm to victims who had to go through a yearly process every year. ... more

  • Spoke about Not Criminally Responsible Reform Act

    Mr. Speaker, the designation of “high risk” could impose a period where there would be no review for up to three years. Under the current system it is reviewed annually. However, when the “high risk” designation is put into place, first the Crown bears the burden of proving that such a designation should be put in place, in other words that the person is an additional risk to society, and we know that the number of people who would probably fit into this category is very few and far between. ... more

  • Madam Chair, on a preliminary matter, could the clerk, when he gets the witnesses, try to make some determination as to their willingness to come personally or appear via video conferencing. I know that in some instances it's difficult for the witnesses to pay for the expenses up front and then be reimbursed. I don't want to take away from their ability to testify, but if it's easier for them financially to testify via teleconferencing, I think all efforts should be made to determine whether or not that's really better for them.

    We should maybe go in camera to discuss this, if we're going to get into the details. Perhaps we could hold a subcommittee meeting and discuss it now.

    There's a consequential amendment, but I'd like to go to the two expert witnesses and get their response as to the need for the amendment, and the effect on clause 32.
