The centrepiece of the Conservatives' law-and-order agenda cleared its final hurdle Monday.

MPs voted 154-129 to pass Bill C-10, the omnibus crime bill that rolls nine pieces of legislation into one.

The bill was shunted back to the House of Commons after being amended in the Senate.

"It's been a long time coming," said Justice Minister Rob Nicholson Monday.

"This will be welcomed, particularly by victims (and) those involved with law enforcement."

But the Opposition cautioned it may not be smooth sailing for the Tories despite this victory, noting Ontario and Quebec have both complained ludly about having to swallow related costs.

Quebec has hinted it may refuse to pay the tab.
