Mr. McKinnon:

Madam Speaker, the purpose of this bill is to limit the extraordinary discretion of the Treasury Board under the Canadian Forces Superannuation Act to reduce substantially pensions of Canadian Forces personnel who have

June 22, 1982

been discharged for misconduct, sometimes for less than major offences. It is to stop such miscarriages of justice that 1 introduce a bill that I hope some day will receive approval from all sides of the House.

In so far as the

For Carlton Centre

Table 1: Total number of inmates

1976 1977 1978 1979 198053 48 61 100 88

The above table indicates the total number of inmates for each year 1976 to 1980. Each figure includes the inmates on register as of January 1st of each year plus all admissions and transfers to the institution during that year. For questions (a) through (1) see Table 2 below.

Table 2 Carlton Centre

Number of inmates, per offence, who were serving their sentences during the years 1976 to 1980

1976 1977 1978 1979 1980(a) First degree murder: nil (1 )[i] nil (1) nil (I) nil (1) nil (1)(b) Second degree murder: ml(6)[n] nil (6) nil (4) nil (4) nil (4)(c) Attempted murder: 1 1 1 nil 1(d) Manslaughter: 2 1 4 2 1(e) Rape: I 1 3 1 4attempted rape: nil nil nil nil nil(0 Other sexual offences: nil nil 4 4 1(g) Assault [iii]: nil nil 1 1 nil(h) Robbery: 15 9 15 12 8(i) Weapons offences: nil nil nil 1 nil(j) Break and enter: 15 4 10 15 16(k) Cannabis offences [iv]: nil nil nil nil nil(0 Other Narcotic Control Act offences: 2 2 10 6 2

Footnotes:

[i] and [ii] Number in brackets indicates inmates convicted of capital and non-capital murder prior to the 1976 Criminal Law Amendment Act (No. 2).

(iii) "Assault" includes the following offences: common assault, assault causing bodily harm, assault with intent and other assaults.

[iv] "Cannabis offences" are only identified by the CSC's national headquarters computer if they involve "cultivation of opium poppy, marijuana". Other cannabis offences such as "trafficking in marijuana" are included in (1) Other Narcotic Control Act offences.

The table indicates, for each offence, the number of inmates incarcerated on January 1 added to those admitted and transferred to the institution during the remainder of the year. This gives the number of inmates incarcerated throughout each year for each particular offence. It should be noted that the figures cannot be added either horizontally or vertically. Horizontally because an inmate convicted of a specified offence could remain at the same institution for each year, therefore, giving the impression that there were five inmates convicted of the offence when in reality there was only one and vertically because some inmates may have been convicted of more than one crime.
