Mr. Speaker, doing it right is better than doing it fast.
How badly flawed is Bill C-23? If and when it comes into effect it will have zero names on it because it is not retroactive. The Liberals want people to reoffend before they get put on the registry. The provinces, victims, and police have been screaming for a retroactive registry.
Why will the Solicitor General not commit to a sex offender registry that will actually have the names of those convicted on it?
