BREAKING NEWS //
GOING SOFTER ON CRIME, VOTE ON THURSDAY
Over the last months we have consistently highlighted C-75 which will amend Canadian law to reduce penalties for serious crimes in Canada such as profiting off of trafficking, forced marriage, abducting a minor (see full list below).
This bill is was expected to go to final vote on Thursday Nov. 22nd but has been postponed. This is good news as it gives more time to contact MPs.
Members of Parliament have shared with us that there has been VERY LITTLE outcry against this bill.
We can change that.
One assistant shared with us today, “I don’t believe Canadians full understand the ramifications.”
We have 48 hours to impact this bill in the House of Commons.
Please join us in taking action by e-mailing your Member of Parliament right now.
Please e-mail your MP to ask them to vote against this bill. Even a one sentence e-mail will make an impact.

Summarization of issues with Bill C-75 //
In Canada there are summary conviction offences, and indictable offenses.
Summary conviction offences are considered less serious than indictable offences so they could be punished with as little as a fine and a maximum of 2 years less a day in prison.
The proposed legislation, Bill C-75, looks to include a long list of very serious crimes into the definition of “summary offence.“
Section 786 of the Code has a statute that prohibits persons from being tried for a summary conviction offence more than 6 months after the offence was committed unless both the prosecutor and defendant agree otherwise.
C-75 would also prohibit a judge from banning a convicted person from public areas where children are likely to be, such as schools and parks.
Listed are 131 of the crimes that will be included in this legislation:
// Bold are particularly serious offences //
Title of offence as found in Bill C-75:
14. Participation in activity of a terrorist group *amended
15. Leaving Canada to participate in activity of terrorist group *amended
16. Advocating or promoting commission of terrorism offences *amended
17. Concealing person who carried out terrorist activity *amended
18. Concealing a person who is likely to carry out terrorist activity *amended
19. Frauds on the government
