Current Affairs (2009) - Bill C-10 (12 items)

Dec 30, 2009 Prime Minister Shuts Down Parliament - Kills Bill C-15 In a political maneuver designed to shield his embattled Conservative government from criticism during the upcoming Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper on December 30th "prorogued," or shut down, Parliament until a new session begins in March. The move kills all pending legislation, including a Tory "tough on crime" bill, C-15, that included mandatory minimum nine-month prison sentences for growing as much as a single marijuana plant.


Dec 9, 2009 Senate Accepts Bill C-15 Amendments The Senate has voted to amend Bill C-15. The bill will now go to Third Reading in the Senate, and then will be forwarded back to the House of Commons.

Dec 3, 2009 Canadian Senate Committee Passes Bill C-15 C-15 has been passed by the Senate Committee with minor amendments.

Jun 25, 2009 Senate stalls passage of mandatory minimum sentencing legislation "Conservative Justice Minister Rob Nicholson held a press conference today to protest the slow pace of the passage his so-called 'law and order' agenda in the Senate. Nicholson specifically cited Bill C-15, which proposes mandatory jail terms for growing even a few marijuana plants, and implored the Senate to pass the bill in less than 24 hours."

Jun 8, 2009 Bill C-15 passes - with a minority government! Bill C-15, mandatory minimum sentences for drug offences including marijuana passed the House of Commons 195/54. The bill was pushed through by the Conservative Party with the support of the Liberals. EMAIL THE LIBERALS AND TELL THEM HOW YOU FEEL The Senate must still study and pass C-15, and is the last chance to stop this Bill from becoming law. This is a rare event, but does happen, as it did in 1991 with the abortion law.

Jun 5, 2009 C-15 vote delayed until Monday, June 8 Due to some unusual Parliamentary tactics, the vote on C-15 was postponed until Monday. If it is postponed 5 more days, the session will end and C-15 may die. There is still time to do something

Apr 27, 2009 Bill C-15 Committee Meetings

Mar 26, 2009 Bill C-15 could fill Canadian prisons with drug offenders If passed into law, Bill C-15 would, among its other provisions, throw people caught with one marijuana plant into the slammer for a minimum of six months. If growing a single plant is done on a property that belongs to another person or in an area where it may present a hazard to children, minimum jail time is nine months. Worse, the bill seeks to increase the maximum penalty for this particular offence to 14 years.
