Mr. Chuck Cadman (Surrey North, Ind.)

Mr. Speaker, the Canadian standard for anti-theft vehicle immobilizers is recognized as the best in the world, yet Transport Canada has published its intent to adopt the much weaker European standard that can be compromised by car thieves using the simplest of tools.
The Canadian standard makes it very difficult to steal vehicles as the systems have proven to be almost impossible to compromise.
My question is for the Minister of Transport. Why is Transport Canada considering adopting an inferior European system?
