Petition to the Prime Minister A very troubling piece of legislation has recently been brought before the House of Commons. Bill C-75 proposes lightening the sentences on very serious crime, such as: participation in activity of a terrorist group, obstructing or violence to or arrest of officiating clergyman, punishment for infanticide, abduction of person under the age of 16, impaired driving causing bodily harm, and many others. A strong criminal justice system must put the rights of victims and communities before special treatment for perpetrators of violent crime. Therefore, we encourage you to sign a petition at the table in the foyer seeking to draw the Prime Minister’s attention to our concerns for this Bill.
