Therefore, honourable senators, in amendment, I move:
That Bill C-75, as amended, be not now read a third time, but that it be further amended in clause 225, on page 79, by replacing line 27 with the following:
“been previously convicted — or discharged on the conditions prescribed in a probation order under section 730 — of an offence in the com-”.
In conclusion, senators must understand that when a perpetrator receives a conditional discharge, he or she is considered by the court to have never committed an act of domestic violence. In such cases, since the information exists, we must absolutely recognize that this individual is violent. Discharging this person a second time would mean putting the life of his or her spouse or former spouse in real danger.
