Hon. Peter MacKay (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, CPC)
Mr. Speaker, like my friend from Calgary, I have spoken to many victims and heard their concerns. It is why we have passed over 30 justice bills in this place, including the victims bill of rights. Our proposed bill would help ensure that the worst of the worst offenders, those who kill police officers, prison guards, who kill during a sexual assault, kidnapping or act of terrorism face severe consequences, including the potential of imprisonment for life without parole.
Only this Conservative government can be counted on to give victims a voice and to protect our families and communities from violent criminals.
To you, Mr. Speaker, and all of my colleagues, I say goodbye, Godspeed, and enjoy the summer.
