Ian Murray


Mr. Ian Murray (Lanark—Carleton, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Justice. There is some concern in rural Canada that provisions in Bill C-17 relating to cruelty to animals will allow for prosecution for such normal activities as farming and hunting.
Will the minister please clarify the actual intent of the measures in Bill C-17?
