In Committee from the House of Commons - Justice and Human Rights


Justice and Human Rights (November 1, 2011)

Quebec Justice Minister Jean-Marc Fournier testified as part of the committee's study of the government's omnibus crime bill. Fournier informed MPs that the Quebec government will not pay the cost of the new measures in the bill. The omnibus legislation groups together nine previous bills that were tabled by the Conservative government in the previous session.

The committee also heard testimony from Warren Lemcke (Vancouver Police Department), Tom Stamatakis (Canadian Police Association), Kathy Vandergrift (Canadian Coalition for the Rights of Children), Caleb Chepesiuk (Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy), Joe Wamback (Canadian Crime Victim Foundation), and Elizabeth Pousoulidis (Association of Families of Persons Assassinated or Disappeared).
