In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - May 30, 2013


Legal and Constitutional Affairs

Senators continue their review of a bill (C-15) that aims to strengthen the military justice system. Pierre Daigle from the National Defence and Canadian Forces, Bruno Hamel representing the Canadian Forces Grievance Board, Julianne Dunbar of the General Counsel and Director of Operations, and Glenn Stannard of the Military Police Complaints Commission discuss the accountability of internal military police investigations and how it will effect the organizational operations.

Holly MacDougall, retired captain from National Defence discusses how the bill will affect the prosecution process in military proceedings.

Senators turn their attention in the last part of the meeting to a private member's bill (C-350). Conservative MP Guy Lauzon discusses how his bill will ensure that offenders are held accountable for any monetary debts owed. Any monetary award owed to an offender as a result of a legal action would be distributed by priority to fulfill outstanding debts in child and spousal support, restitution orders, and victim surcharges.

UPDATE: Bill C-15 received royal assent on June 19.
