Criminal Code

Madam Speaker, I would like to thank my friend and learned colleague who has provided a lot of perspective on this. That one issue needs to be addressed at committee or immediately with respect to Bill C-14, because it shows that already the legislation and the framework is flawed.

Going back to my earlier comments, this is a difficult circumstance, where, as parliamentarians, we are faced with compassion on both sides of the issue. Provided we have shared time between the member for Thornhill and myself, who may disagree on the final elements of what we see missing in Bill C-14, it shows the gravity of this decision, why we should have this debate, and why more members should be here to share their personal views with respect to concerns on either side.
