This legal efficiency would provide a much more timely way to prosecute and punish those who choose to mix impairing drugs with driving activity. Sillars is charged with impaired operation of a vessel causing death and operating a vessel with a blood-alcohol level over 80 milligrams causing death, among other counts. He was a lawyer and partner at a Yarmouth firm until his election. This led him to found a number of projects and organizations, including We Will Always Remember, which pays tribute to veterans, for which he was given a Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation in 2003.

Fraser said he wants to leave it up to the courts to develop the case law on drunk canoeing, rather than having the government clarify it. Speaker, I thank my hon. Last Friday, I was honoured to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony organized by the Maple Grove Education Centre's Memorial Club. I thank Joe for his dedication and hard work in helping veterans tell their stories and ensuring students learn about the freedoms and values we hold dear as proud Canadians. Our government has invested in the harbours in West Nova, but much more good work needs to be done to ensure our fishers have safe and accessible infrastructure. Somebody was impaired and somebody got killed, in the boat.
Criminal Code offences are classified as either summary, indictable, or hybrid; which is a combination of both summary and indictable. That is what I have heard from constituents I have talked to about this, that we have to get it right. However, due to years of neglect, many of these small craft harbours are in disrepair or do not have enough berthage to accommodate the increasing size of vessels that are a result of a successful fishery. Thanks to the leadership of the Municipality of Clare and the dedicated support of many community volunteers, Cape Saint Mary Lighthouse Park will provide a focal point for showcasing the breathtaking views, beautiful sunsets, and rugged coastline along St. For over three decades, Joe has been teaching youth in the Yarmouth area about the true meaning of respect, sacrifice, volunteering, and leadership. Before becoming a lawyer, Colin worked as a tour guide at Rideau Hall. Vessels are not defined in the Criminal Code at all, aside from an instruction that hovercraft are included.
I think I can speak for all of us when I say that I find this to be very troubling. Again, what is essential here is that people will know they will be much more likely to get caught if they drive while impaired by cannabis. Earlier this year, Ontario Provincial Police laid charges against David Sillars, a 37-year-old who tipped a canoe on the Muskoka River. Once these offences are enacted, the crown would no longer have to prove that a driver was impaired by a drug if an analysis of their blood showed that they had a prohibited level of drugs in their body. Shortly after, the vote passed unanimously. The district is rural with a few small towns and communities located along the coast.

This distinct piece of proposed legislation would strengthen the criminal law response to drug-impaired driving and help to increase the safety of our public streets and roads. I appreciate the question the member is asking. Manitoba and Nova Scotia do legislate time off on Remembrance Day, but with exceptions. Does he agree with that? I know the member has talked about other concerns, but I wonder if he would recognize the importance of this measure to combat the illicit trade in conventional arms and the human rights violations associated with it. The faster we get the right tools, the funding, the training, and the legislative and regulatory authorities in place, the safer Canadians will be.
Association of French speaking lawyers. While the Liberal government said a summary conviction would be used for less serious cases, advocates urged the government to back off on certain crimes related to terrorism. As part of the legislation, the Liberals are proposing to hybridize over 100 indictable offences that are punishable with up to 10 years in jail, in the name of prosecutorial discretion and efficiency. We heard over and over in testimony that it is the fear of getting caught that will be the most effective way to reduce impaired driving on our roads. He has previously been vice-chair of the West Nova Inclusive Employment Society and was a big brother with Big-Brothers Big-Sisters.

It seems that few people jump from Federal politics to provincial unless they already have a strong base and think that they can slide right into the Premier's job.
Could the please inform the House on the outcome of this year's forum? That is what Bill C-45 does and that is why all members should support this important legislation. South Western Nova and South West Nova were ridings that covered roughly the same geographic area and were represented in the House of Commons from 1968 to 1979 and 1979 to 1997, respectively. Bill C-75 is an omnibus piece of legislation that aims to reform a number of areas of Canada's criminal justice system, address court backlogs, and wraps in several bills that had stalled in the House. His practice areas included criminal and family law, real estate, wills and estates, and civil litigation. What these do is reduce court delays by allowing prosecutors to choose a summary conviction, but that comes with a maximum sentence of two years less a day. In these types of cases, the Crown can choose whether to proceed by indictment or summary conviction based on factors like the circumstances of the alleged crime, previous convictions, and the type of sentence being pursued. It is an important discussion to have with communities across the country.
But if the provincial governments in question choose to amend employment standards legislation to recognize Nov. The proposals on impaired driving would authorize a new tool for police officers to better detect drivers with drugs in their body. And it should be noted that for the nine jurisdictions already observing Remembrance Day as a statutory or public holiday in Canada, no changes are expected, said de Grâce. He proudly serves on the House of Commons standing committee on Veterans Affairs and also the standing committee on Justice and Human Rights. In conclusion, it is critical to underscore the objectives of Bill , which is designed to legalize, strictly regulate, and restrict access to cannabis.
Speaker, we did hear lots of interesting testimony at our committee. Our government is committed to doing that. Peter holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Concordia University and a Master of Science in Renewable Resources from McGill University. You can find the full text of the rules. Among these offences: participating in or contributing to a terrorist group, and advocating or promoting genocide. The riding has been called a microcosm of rural Canada because it includes fishing, farming, tourism, small business and an English-French mix. Speaker, on August 30, I travelled to Cape Saint Mary in my riding of West Nova to announce financial support from the Government of Canada to help create Cape Saint Mary Lighthouse Park.
