    James MooreBill C-14, the Not Criminally Responsible Reform Act, received Royal Assent last week, ensuring that the Government can deliver on its commitment to protect Canadians from not criminally responsible (NCR) accused persons who have been found to pose a higher risk of committing violence if released. Bill C-14 ensures that public safety comes first in the decision-making process with respect to accused persons found NCR or unfit to stand trial on account of mental disorder. The legislation also enhances the safety of victims and promotes greater victim involvement. The Bill addresses concerns raised by victims and families of victims as well as the provinces and territories. The legislation creates a new designation process which aims to protect the public from NCR accused persons who are found by a court to pose a higher risk of committing acts of violence. Families of some victims have applauded the Government's action to reduce the risk of repeat violent actions by creating the high-risk designation and ensuring that victims are better informed about the status of the NCR accused. Upon being designated by a court as high-risk, an NCR accused would be held in custody in a hospital and could not be released by a review board until the high-risk designation was revoked by a court. The Criminal Code amendments will come into effect three months from the date of Royal Assent (on July 10) while provisions related to the National Defence Act will come into force on a day or days to be fixed by order of the Governor in Council.

    Joe OliverCanadians understand what happens when they spend more than they earn. They end up in debt and are saddled with interest payments that erode their ability to afford necessities and save for retirement. Most people understand that budgets do not balance themselves, any more for governments than for families. Balanced budgets flow from sound fiscal management that creates a stable business climate leading to increased investment, new jobs and more growth.

    Jason Kenney“I was devastated to learn earlier today of the violent death of five young people in our city. Our hearts ache today for the victims and our thoughts and prayers are with their families and friends, and the University of Calgary community. On behalf of the Government of Canada and my Parliamentary colleagues from Calgary, I extend my deepest condolences to all those affected by today’s terrible crime.”

    James MooreRecent media reports have misrepresented the intent of Bill S-4, the Digital Privacy Act. The purpose of the Digital Privacy Act is to strengthen the protection of Canadians’ privacy. The bill requires organizations to tell Canadians if their personal information has been lost or stolen, and imposes heavy fines on companies that deliberately break the rules. It also gives the Privacy Commissioner of Canada more power to enforce the law and hold offenders to account. It is a balanced approach to protecting Canadians’ personal information, while still allowing for information sharing when illegal activity has occurred. The Digital Privacy Act will not force companies to hand over private information to the police, “copyright trolls” or anyone else. The Act will place strict limits and tight restrictions on the type of personal information companies can disclose to other organizations. A company that chooses to disclose private information must follow strict rules before releasing it. These rules ensure that information is only released when there is a reason to believe the law has been broken, the investigation would be compromised by notifying the individual, and that only information needed in the investigation is released. If a company breaks these rules, the Privacy Commissioner can take legal action. This approach matches the system already in place in Alberta and British Columbia. It was supported by all opposition parties when parliament last reviewed this matter. And, the bill is supported by the Privacy Commissioner, who has called the Digital Privacy Act a “very positive development” for the privacy rights of Canadians. In the coming weeks and months, Parliament will debate this legislation and committees will hear from expert witnesses. We look forward to this debate on how we can best protect Canadians in our digital world.

    James MooreDe récents rapports médiatiques ont présenté en termes inexacts l’intention du projet de loi S-4, la Loi sur la protection des renseignements personnels numériques. La Loi sur la protection des renseignements personnels numériques vise à favoriser une protection accrue des renseignements personnels des Canadiens. Le projet de loi exige des organismes qu’ils informent les Canadiens de la perte ou du vol de leurs renseignements personnels, et prévoit des amendes importantes pour les entreprises qui contreviennent de façon délibérée aux règles. Il donne aussi plus de pouvoirs au commissaire à la protection de la vie privée du Canada pour appliquer la loi et demander des comptes aux contrevenants. Cette approche équilibrée à l’égard de la protection des renseignements personnels des Canadiens permet toutefois le partage de renseignements advenant la tenue d’activités illégales ou la violation d’un accord. La Loi sur la protection des renseignements personnels numériques ne forcera pas les entreprises à remettre des renseignements personnels à quiconque, qu’il s’agisse de la police ou des « trolls de droit d’auteur ». La Loi établit des paramètres stricts et des restrictions rigoureuses sur le type de renseignements personnels que les entreprises peuvent divulguer aux autres organismes. Une entreprise qui choisit de divulguer des renseignements personnels doit respecter des règles strictes avant de le faire. Ces règles font en sorte que l’information ne peut être divulguée que s’il y a raison de croire qu’il y a eu contravention à la loi; qu’une enquête en cours pourrait être compromise si l’individu en était averti, et que seule l’information nécessaire à l’enquête a été divulguée. Si l’entreprise enfreint les règles, le commissaire à la protection de la vie privée peut intenter des procédures judiciaires. Cette mesure correspond au régime qui est en vigueur en Alberta et en Colombie-Britannique. Cette mesure a reçu l’appui de tous les partis d’opposition lors de sa dernière relecture au Parlement. Ce projet de loi a aussi reçu l’appui du commissaire à la protection de la vie privée, qui a dit que ce projet de loi contient « des éléments très favorables » pour les droits des Canadiens en matière de vie privée. Dans les semaines et les mois qui viennent, des débats sur la législation auront lieu au Parlement, et les comités entendront les commentaires et témoignages et d’experts. Ces débats, nous l’espérons vivement, nous permettront de trouver la meilleure formule pour protéger adéquatement les Canadiens à l’ère numérique.

    Joe OliverFor the third year in a row we have reduced direct program spending, something few governments have done in decades. This commitment to balanced budgets and sound fiscal management protects important social programs. In fact, it enables us to increase funding for healthcare, education and retirement income. This is not something that just happens. For example, the federal budget was balanced in the 1990’s by cutting funding to the provinces for healthcare and education.

I extend my best wishes to everyone celebrating Vaisakhi: http://is.gd/9hdDzg Je tiens à offrir mes meilleurs vœux à tous ceux et celles qui célèbrent Vaisakhi : http://is.gd/pO6Mom Canada is home to one of the largest Sikh populations outside of India. The Sikh community has made many contributions to our country, in all areas of endeavour, and has contributed significantly to Canada’s rich diversity and heritage. I encourage Canadians to reflect today on their contributions to helping build our country. La communauté sikhe du Canada est une des plus grandes hors de l’Inde. Elle a apporté de nombreuses contributions à notre pays dans tous les domaines d’activité et a contribué de façon significative au patrimoine riche et diversifié de notre pays. J’encourage les Canadiens à réfléchir à l’important rôle que joue la communauté dans l’essor de notre pays.

    Joe OliverOne in five jobs in Canada is tied to trade. To keep growing our economy we must secure new markets for our products. The Prime Minister announced an agreement in principle on a comprehensive economic and trade agreement with the European Union, the largest economy in the world. Last month he also announced that we concluded negotiations with the Republic of Korea, Canada’s first free trade agreement with an Asian country. All together we have signed trade and investment agreements with over 30 countries since 2006. These agreements will create new opportunities for Canadian businesses and workers in all parts of the country.

    Gail SheaThe Charlottetown Guardian published today a story that falsely claims that “EI regions will reduce payments to Islanders”. Is it actually the opposite. The text posted in the Canada Gazette today clearly states that: “More specifically, on an annual basis, there will be (.)approximately $1 million in program costs for Prince Edward Island. New administrative costs of up to $0.6 million annually would be absorbed internally within existing funding levels.” This means $1 million more in EI benefits flowing to PEI. This mistake on the Guardian's part is regretable. Having two distinct regions for PEI will allow the EI program to better reflect the economic conditions in the capital region, and make sure that workers in rural parts of the province who rely more on seasonal employment have access to appropriate benefits. It reflects reality that job opportunities for Islanders differ greatly between Charlottetown and the rural areas of Prince Edward Island. Our Government is proud to stand up for Prince Edward Islanders living in rural areas and recognize their unique reality and challenges. I am proud to be part of a Government that has listened to the concerns of Islanders, and is bringing forward a concrete solution.

    James MooreThe Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is pleased to report that all of its online systems have been restored to full service as of April 13, 2014. Individuals, businesses and representatives are now able to file returns, make payments, and access all other e-services available through the CRA's website, including all secure portals. Interest and penalties will not be applied to individual taxpayers filing their 2013 tax returns after April 30, 2014 for a period equal to the length of the service interruption. This means individual tax returns for 2013 filed by May 5 will not incur interest or penalties.

    Joe OliverSince the recession we’ve had the strongest job creation record in the G7, better than the US, better than the UK, better than Germany. In fact, the Canadian economy created over one million net new jobs since 2009. These are good, solid jobs, 65% in high wage industries, 88% full time, 82% in the private sector. Furthermore Canadian households have seen an almost 10% increase in their after tax income under our government and more than 45% increase in their net worth.
