In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - June 2, 2015


Senators continue their hearings on Bill C-26, which would increase penalties for sexual offences committed against children. It would also create a publicly accessible high-risk child sex offender database.

Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien discusses his office's concerns about the effectiveness of the proposed database. Former NHL player Sheldon Kennedy, who is lead director of the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre, and Ellen Campbell, president and founder of the Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness, express their support for the legislation. (June 2, 2015) UPDATE: Bill C-26 received royal assent on June 18.
