CONCURRENCE IN SENATE AMENDMENTS


Hon. ERNEST LAPOINTE (Minister of Justice) moved the second reading of and concurrence in amendments made by the senate to Bill No. 170 respecting juvenile delinquents. He said: Mr. Speaker, the senate has amended this bill by adding two or three subsections which were suggested by the child welfare organizations, and which really improve the bill. There is no objection to them on the part of the Department of Justice. To section 17 the senate has added subsection (5), providing that when a child has been placed under the surveillance of a foster home outside the jurisdiction of the court, the court may issue a warrant or any other process outside of its jurisdiction for the purpose of reaching such child. Subsection (3) of section 22 has been amended to read: (3) Where, under the provisions of this section or of section 20, a sum of money is ordered to be paid, the court may adjudge, either by the order respecting the payment of such sum or by an order made subsequently, that the same shall be recoverable by distress and sale of the goods and chattels of the party and in default of such distress by imprisonment. That follows a similar provision in the Criminal Code. Section 36 has been amended to read in this form: 36. (1) Every juvenile court shall have such and like powqrs and authority to preserve order in court during the sittings thereof and by the like ways and means as now by law are or may be exercised and used in like cases and for the like purposes by any court in Canada and by the judges thereof, during the sittings thereof. (2) Every judge of a juvenile court, whenever any resistance is offered to the execution of any summons, warrant of execution or other process issued by him, may enforce the due execution of the same by the means provided by the law for enforcing the execution of the process of other courts in like cases. There are no other amendments. Motion agreed to; amendments read the second time and concurred in.

Mr. SPENCER:

This seems a particularly small grant for the purpose. Surely there is more money spent in this regard.

We might as well dispose of this item. It appears from year to year and is assistance for which the Department of Health takes responsibility in connection with the suppressing of the traffic.
