Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The previous government instituted a tax credit for Volunteer Firemen in 2011 and a similar tax treatment for Volunteer Search and Rescue in 2014;
  • Property Crime and Criminal Code Offences have spiked in Rural Alberta;
  • Citizens on Patrol, acting as the eyes and ears of the RCMP have proven to be highly effective in reducing the incidents of crime; and
  • A Citizen on Patrol is an unarmed, unpaid, volunteer who often requires the use of a personal vehicle.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to extend a tax credit to Citzens on Patrol similar to that already given to Volunteer FireFighters and Search and Rescue volunteers.
