Chuck Cadman lives on...

Torontonians incensed by the street-racing-related death of a cab driver who was about to become a Canadian citizen might be interested in Bill C-65, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (street racing), which has been wending its way through parliament.

The Liberals introduced the street racing bill to honour Chuck Cadman and his memory. But the Conservatives opposed it saying it was a watered-down version of Cadman's private member's Bill C-338 on street racing, which the Liberals killed (in committee?).

Will the Conservative minority be reintroducing C-65 or will they put forth a new bill that more closely hews to Cadman's? Alas, either way, it's too late for Tahir Khan.
