Friday: MPs consider journalist source protection

June 9, 2017 9:44amET

The budget implementation bill (C-44) is considered at third reading.

MPs also return to a Senate bill to afford protection for journalistic sources. Media reports yesterday suggested the government will support Bill S-231, which restricts the ability of police to use search warrants against the media to uncover confidential sources.

Read the full bill:

Former Bloc Québécois MP Serge Ménard introduced a similar bill in 2007, but it failed to proceed beyond second reading.
