Mr. Paul Harold Macklin (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, Lib.)
Mr. Speaker, clearly everyone in the House is against child pornography. I do not think there is any question about that.

The evidence before committee was that minimum sentencing simply does not work.
