Mr. Speaker, Constable David Wynn was shot and killed in the line of duty by a career criminal out on bail because his criminal record was never presented at the bail hearing. Wynn’s law, which is still before the House, would close this loophole and it would save lives. Liberal backbenchers in fact, were essential in making sure that this law passed but yesterday, shockingly, and this is unbelievable, the Prime Minister ordered that this bill be gutted against the will of the House. Why? The Right Honourable Prime Minister. Mr. Speaker, we recognize the pain caused to the officer’s family, especially his wife Shelly MacInnis-Wynn and their three sons, his RCMP colleagues, and the St. Albert community and beyond. Our government is committed to modernizing improving our justice system so that we can protect victims and so that we can protect rights. That is exactly what we are moving forward on doing. We look forward to hearing the committee’s recommendation on what to do with this piece of legislation. Order. The Honourable Leader of the Opposition. Mr. Speaker, this is unbelievable. The Prime Minister actually said to Constable Wynn’s widow that he was “very pleased” that she was in Ottawa to discuss the bail system. He also claimed at that time that it was important that we keep our communities and our families safe. But by ordering the bill to be scrapped at committee, we now know that none of this was true and he meant none of it. It’s a complete betrayal. So what does he have to say now to Constable Wynn’s widow? The Right Honourable Prime Minister. Mr. Speaker, we take very seriously the safety of Canadians, the safety of communities, the safety of the front-line officers that put their lives on their line to protect their fellow Canadians every single day. That’s why I’m pleased that the study- the committee took very seriously the study of this proposal to improve our justice system. On this- on this side of the House, Mr. Speaker, we believe in two things, we believe in evidence-based policy and we believe in allowing committees to do their jobs. Order. The Honourable Leader of the Opposition. This is unbelievable, Conservatives, NDP, Green , Bloc, and many Liberal backbenchers got up, voted, and did the right thing so the bill would pass and now we’re at committee where no one’s watching and the Prime Minister has ordered it to be gutted. This is disgusting. And the Prime Minister should be ashamed of himself. The Right Honourable Prime Minister. Mr. Speaker, I can understand the member’s confusion. On this government we do not interfere with the functioning of committees. We allow committees to make their own determinations, to examine laws, to examine and hear from witnesses, and to make decisions based on evidence. We are committed to improving our justice system. We’re improving it to be in Canadians’ sake. That’s exactly what we’re going to keep doing while we respect the hard work done by committees.
