Mr. Len Webber (Calgary Confederation, CPC):
Mr. Speaker, later today, Bill S-217, Wynn’s law, will come to a decisive vote. Members of the House will decide if the death of RCMP Constable David Wynn was in vain, or if his death was the catalyst for meaningful change.
Members will vote. They will decide if we are willing to lose another life, or lives, or if we will take responsible steps to protect Canadians. Members will cast a vote to keep a flawed justice system, or a vote to improve our justice system.
We have the opportunity to honour the legacy of Constable David Wynn. We have the opportunity to make our streets safer. We have the opportunity to fix a loophole in our justice system. We have the opportunity to make a positive difference.
I encourage all colleagues to seize that opportunity and support Bill S-217.
