Mr. Alan Redway (York East):
Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Justice. Last week, because of our very ineffective pollution laws, a judge in Toronto was required to use contempt of court proceedings to deal with a polluter who continued to dump toxic chemicals despite previous court orders. When will the Minister introduce in the House effective pollution control legislation outlining offences and penalties which will deal with the matter, including jail terms, as recommended by the Law Reform Commission of Canada?
