Wallace Bickford (Wally) Nesbitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Nesbitt:

Mr. Speaker, this bill proposes to enlarge the definition of defamatory libel, as it appears in the Criminal Code, to include hate literature. Because such literature is in many cases the expression of a sick mind, the bill further proposes that any person charged or convicted of publishing such a libel shall be placed under mental observation to determine whether he is mentally ill.
