In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - May 9, 2013


Legal and Constitutional Affairs

Senators conduct their clause-by-clause consideration of the government's contraband tobacco legislation (S-16). They also hear witnesses on a Conservative private member's bill (C-299) that deals with the kidnapping of a child under the age of 16 by a stranger.

Rodney B. Freeman, chief of the Woodstock Police Service, Michel Surprenant, president of the Association of Families of Persons Assassinated or Disappeared, Pina Arcamone, director general of the Missing Children’s Network, and Christian Bergeron, who is appearing as an individual, present their views on the kidnapping legislation.

UPDATE: Bill C-299 received royal assent on June 26.
