In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - February 13, 2014


Senators continue their review of Bill C-217, which would make it a Criminal Code offence to commit mischief in relation to a war memorial or cenotaph.

Royal Canadian Legion representatives Gordon Moore and Steven Clark inform the committee that while the Legion supports the principle of the bill, it is concerned about the lack of alternative forms of punishment and accountability. Retired Brigadier-General David Kettle from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission discusses the difficulties that the Commission faces with respect to vandalism. Leo Russomanno from the Criminal Lawyers' Association and Graeme Hamilton with the Canadian Council of Criminal Defence Lawyers outline their organizations' concerns with the proposed legislation.
