In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - February 12, 2014


Conservative MP David Tilson briefs committee members on his private member's bill (C-217) to create minimum fines and prison terms for vandalizing war memorials or cenotaphs. The bill would amend the mischief section of the Criminal Code.

Andrew Nellestyn, a retired colonel and veteran, and Chris Skalozub, sergeant at arms for the Orangeville Legion and chair of the Legion's memorial restoration fund, express their support of the proposed legislation. Catherine Latimer, executive director of the John Howard Society of Canada, outlines her organization's concerns with the bill. The concerns are related to whether the bill is consistent with principles of criminal law and if it would be an effective approach to the problem. (February 12, 2014)
