The following acts are now law.
- Fairness at the Pumps Act (C-14) – protects Canadian consumers from inaccurate measurements when purchasing gasoline or other measured goods, by making retailers more accountable for the accuracy of their pumps and other devices, beefing up fines, adding new penalties and introducing a new fine for repeat offences;
Can't complain about that one. Now about those gas taxes...
- Standing up for Victims of White Collar Crime Act (C-21) – will combat white-collar crime, toughening sentences and imposing mandatory minimum penalties;
This has become more and more prevalent (see the Michael Ritter story over at daveberta.ca). My cousin is a white-collar crime investigator; I wonder what he thinks. But again, how can one complain about it.
- An Act Respecting the Mandatory Reporting of Internet Child Pornography by Persons who Provide an Internet Service (C-22)
– toughens laws protecting children from adult sexual predators by making it mandatory for Internet service suppliers to report online child pornography;
Yep. Again, no complaints here.
- Protecting Canadians by Ending Sentence Discounts for Multiple Murders Act (C-48) – allows judges to impose consecutive parole ineligibility periods on individuals convicted of multiple murders;
- Serious Time for the Most Serious Crime Act (S-6) – puts a stop to early parole for murderers, which addresses the additional anguish suffered by victims’ families as a result of attending repeated parole hearings;
- An Act to Amend the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (C-35) – cracks down on crooked immigration consultants who exploit prospective immigrants and undermine the integrity of Canada’s immigration system, helping protect those wanting to immigrate to or stay in Canada;
It's been getting worse and worse.
- Freezing Assets of Corrupt Regimes Act (C-61) – allows Canada to act upon the request of a foreign state to freeze the assets that their former leaders and members of their entourage, including family members, senior officials and associates, may have placed in Canadian financial institutions.
Wait a sec. If the Liberals win and Canada becomes corrupt again, can the government freeze the assets of its leaders?
