e-2091 (Sentences in the Criminal Code)

E-petition
Initiated by Bretton McCann from Port Moody, British Columbia

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

Whereas:
  • There are numerous cases in Canada where certain offenders have refused to disclose the location of their victims' remains;
  • The ongoing refusal of these offenders to cooperate in the location of the body or remains of a victim increases the emotional trauma on family members and friends of the victim;
  • The current law does not stipulate an offender’s refusal to disclose victims’ remains as an aggravating factor for consideration at sentencing or for being granted parole or temporary absence; and
  • Bill C-437, also known as McCanns’ Law, will assist authorities and families in the recovery of the remains of victims by creating potential consequences in sentencing and paroling for those offenders who do not cooperate.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada,, call upon the House of Commons to enact Bill C-437.
