In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Human Rights - December 8, 2014 - Part 3


Senators hear from their last groups of witnesses on Bill S-7, the government's proposed zero tolerance for barbaric cultural practices act. The final group of witnesses include Craig E. Jones, law professor at Thompson Rivers University, J. Michael Spratt, lawyer at Abergel Goldstein & Partners, and Superintendent Tyler Bates, director of the RCMP’s National Aboriginal Policing and Crime Prevention Services. The witnesses discuss polygamous marriages, the use of provocation as a defence in so-called honour killings, and early and forced marriage. (December 8, 2014)
