|REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE||
October 30, 2003
The Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs
has the honour to present its
Your Committee, to which was referred Bill C-45,
An Act to amend the Criminal Code (criminal liability of organizations), has, in
obedience to the Order of Reference of Wednesday, October 29, 2003, examined the
said Bill and now reports the same without amendment but with observations,
which are appended to this report.
to the Eighth Report of the Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs
Your Committee wishes it noted that the Honourable Senators Andreychuk, Beaudoin and Joyal, P.C. have strongly objected to the fact that they believe that they have been unable to adequately fulfill their legislative duties. This has occurred because of a scheduling conflict with another Senate Committee, which was sitting outside its regular time.
Your Committee is sympathetic to these members’ concerns and agrees
that standing committees which are meeting during their regularly scheduled time
should be given priority.
