Senate Passes Bill
OTTAWA — A private member’s bill that would add suicide bombing to the Criminal Code definition of terrorism passed the Senate unanimously last week. The bill, introduced by Liberal Senator Jerry Grafstein, now moves to the House of Commons, where it appears to have the support of the Liberals and Conservatives. Supporters of the bill, including Canadians Against Suicide Bombing, are seeking all-party backing to ensure it passes quickly.
