Barry Mather

New Democratic Party

Mr. Mather:

Mr. Speaker, the purpose of this bill is to amend the Criminal Code to provide penalties for persons convicted of abusing the telephone service to harass or torment other persons. This represents a serious and growing problem, and in Ontario and Quebec the Bell Telephone Company estimates that some 2,000 complaints are received monthly from the victims of such action. Similar legislation is now before the United States congress.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
