In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - June 4, 2015


Senators conduct their clause-by-clause consideration of 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.
The committee then turns its attention to Bill C-12, which targets drug use in federal prisons. Kim Pate (executive director of the Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies), Rebecca Jesseman (interim director of information systems and performance measurement , Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse) and Gerry Verrier (board member of the Drug Prevention Network of Canada) offer their perspectives on the proposed bill. (June 4, 2015) UPDATE: Bill C-26 received royal assent on June 18.
