- Impaired Driving -

 

Mr. Mark Warawa (Langley, CPC):

     Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to present a petition from a number of constituents and also a number of people from Surrey, British Columbia.

    Last year, 22-year-old Kassandra Kaulius was killed by a drunk driver. A group of people who have also lost loved ones to impaired drivers, called Families for Justice, want to see tougher laws in the implementation of new mandatory minimum sentencing for those persons convicted of impaired driving causing death. They want to see the Criminal Code of Canada changed to redefine the offence of impaired driving causing death to vehicular manslaughter.
