private members bill

This afternoon there was a Private Member bill introduced.
My friend, M.P. Harold Albrecht, put forward a motion, seconded by M.P. Kelly Block that was worded:
“That, in the opinion of the House, for greater certainty, the government should take steps to ensure that counselling a person to commit suicide or aiding or abetting a person to commit suicide is an offence under section 241 of the Criminal Code, regardless of the means used to counsel or aid or abet including via telecommunications, the Internet or a computer system.”
Private Members’ Business M-388
It passed by a vote of 230 to 0!

via national house of prayer
