Conservative, NDP MPs want to make dozens of amendments to feds’ massive justice reform bill, say it’s ‘flawed’
Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould's 302-page justice reform package is aimed at reducing court delays by 'streamlining' the bail system, restricting the option of preliminary inquiries to offences, and improving the jury selection process, among other things.
Conservative MP Michael Cooper, left, says Bill C-75 is 'irreparable,' and the government needs to return to the drawing board, but nonetheless he's drafted dozens of amendments to try to ameliorate it at committee stage. NDP MP Murray Rankin says he's also started a list of amendments to propose. The Hill Times file photographs
