The Standing Senate Committee is currently studying Bill C‑10, An Act to enact the Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act and to amend the State Immunity Act, the Criminal Code, the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, the Corrections and Conditional Release Act, the Youth Criminal Justice Act, the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and other Acts.
This bill groups together nine bills that had been dealt with separately during the previous third session of the Fortieth Parliament.
Bill C‑10 was first introduced in the House of Commons on September 20, 2011 by the Minister of Justice, the Honourable Rob Nicholson and was introduced in the Senate on December 6th 2011.
I have received e-mails, phone calls and letters by thousands of Canadians who have expressed to me their concerns about this piece of legislation. I welcome your feedback and appreciate your support. I hope you find the information below to be useful. I will continue to update this page and urge you to follow the committee proceedings through my Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/senjaffer
