Third Reading.

Vote

Yea.

Rationale

With this legislation, our Government is fulfilling its promise to move forward with comprehensive criminal justice reforms. Once passed, this legislation will have a real effect on court delays. It will help reduce the over-representation of Indigenous people and other marginalized groups in the criminal justice system, including those with mental health and addiction issues. It will help make our juries more representative of the communities they serve.

Result

Passed.
