CRIMINAL CODE

AMENDMENTS RESPECTING AIR AND WATER POLLUTION

LIB

William Warren Allmand

Liberal

Mr. Warren Allmand (Noire-Dame-de-Grace) moved

for leave to introduce Bill No. C-171, to amend the Criminal Code (air and water pollution).

He said: Mr. Speaker, this bill would make it a crime to release pollutants into the atmosphere or public waterways of Canada which cause or are capable of causing undue harm to the health of persons. The new paragraphs would fall under the section dealing with criminal negligence.

This was prompted by the recent information to the effect that pollution in our large cities, in particular Montreal, has increased to extremely dangerous levels. This is one attempt to deal with the problem. I might say, Mr. Speaker, that this bill was prepared and submitted before the debate which started in this house on Monday.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
