e-2426 (Justice)

E-petition
Initiated by Christyna Caldwell from Harding, Manitoba

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Minister of Justice

Whereas:
  • Section 752 of the Canadian Criminal Code that deals with the definition of "serious personal injury offence" does not include offences such as "sexual interference" under paragraph (b) of that definition;
  • Including "sexual interference" would help identify sexual offences committed against children; and
  • Children are among our most vulnerable members of society.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Minister of Justice to amend the definition in section 752 of the Canadian Criminal Code that deals with "serious personal injury offence" to include wording that identifies "sexual interference" when considering dangerous offenders designations.
