CRIMINAL CODE AMENDMENT


Hon. ERNEST LAPOINTE (Minister of Justice) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 13S, to amend the criminal code.


CON
LIB

Ernest Lapointe (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Liberal

Mr. LAPOINTE:

This bill proposes a certain number of amendments to the criminal code. I will merely indicate a few of them. First there are amendments suggested by the interprovincial conference that took place two or three months ago between the attorneys general of the various provinces in connection with stock market operations.

There is an amendment repealing certain sections of the criminal code concerning sedition. This is the same as that which has passed the [Mr. Hanson.)

house on various occasions but which did not get through the other chamber.

There are certain sections which embody a particular bill which has passed the Senate on two occasions in regard to the prevention of the importation and sale of certain weapons, firearms, for instance, except under special conditions. I think this bill which has passed the Senate on two occasions was considered and recommended by a special committee of the house, but the session ended before it could be submitted to the house.

There is a provision prohibiting certain advertisements or the giving of tips in regard to horse races and other games. That provision is similar to one that has been passed by this house on two or three occasions but has failed of being adopted in the other house.

I do not know. There

Finally, there are certain amendments in the matter of procedure which have been suggested and recommended by the attorneys general and other persons entrusted with the administration of criminal justice in the province.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
