In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - November 6, 2014

The committee resumes its hearings on the federal government's anti-cyberbullying legislation. Vancouver Police Chief Jim Chu, who is representing the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, RCMP Superintendent Joe Oliver, Ontario Provincial Police Detective Inspector Scott Naylor, and RCMP Inspector Mercer Armstrong express their support of Bill C-13 and address privacy concerns raised by critics. The witnesses are also questioned on the new powers they would be granted under the proposed legislation.
Senators then hear from two more supporters of the bill. Ottawa city councillor Allan Hubley's 15-year-old son Jamie took his own life in 2011 after years of being bullied. Lawyer Greg Gilhooly is a victim of convicted sex offender and former junior hockey coach Graham James. (November 6, 2014) UPDATE: Bill C-13 received royal assent on December 9.
