About that victims' rights bill in Canada

Victor Choi writes here that Parliament ought to act now. Excerpt:
Passing this bill shouldn't be too difficult. Given that this bill is substantially the same as one proposed by the previous government, the Official Opposition party likely wouldn't want to make too many amendments or make a fuss.

In fact, to ensure a speedy passage, the minister of national defence and his staff should consider reaching out to members of the Standing Committee on National Defence and the corresponding committee in the Senate in good faith, and ask that they consider expediting this bill prior to the next election. They should also offer briefing materials and access to members of the Judge Advocate General for questions.
