In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - November 27, 2014


The committee conducts its clause-by-clause review of the government’s online crime legislation (C-13). Carole Morency and Normand Wong, who are both with the Criminal Law Policy Section at the Department of Justice, answer technical questions.
Senators then begin their pre-study of the budget implementation bill (C-43). Hal Pruden, legal counsel in the Department of Justice‘s Criminal Law Policy Section, provides details of the measure to allow charitable or religious organizations to use computers to conduct a provincially-licensed lottery or 50/50 draw.
Donald Bourgeois, director of legal services for the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, and Jonathan Bodden, vice-president of corporate and community relations from the Ottawa Senators Foundation, discuss the impact of the proposed amendment. The Foundation is participating in a pilot project to enhance existing manual 50/50 raffle draws with electronic handheld mobile devices. (November 27, 2014) UPDATE: Bill C-13 received royal assent on December 9, while Bill C-43 received royal assent on December 16.
