Mr. Speaker, let me congratulate you on the success of this return to Parliament.
I also wish to congratulate the minister on his promotion. I am sure we will have ample opportunities to work together in the future.
I have a question for the minister. I am concerned that any tampering with the presumption of innocence or the right to remain silent could set dangerous precedents.
My question is simple. In its current form, is Bill C‑48 fair?
