Constable Wynn was shot and killed in the line of duty by an individual out on bail;
Evidence of the criminal history of Constable Wynn's killer was not presented at the bail hearing;
It is not required under the Criminal Code for prosecutors to lead evidence of the criminal history of bail applicants;
Bill S-217, known as Wynn's Law, would close the loophole in the Criminal Code by requiring prosecutors to lead evidence of the criminal history of bail applicants;
The Senate of Canada passed Wynn's Law by a wide margin;
The Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada said the "government does not support the bill".
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Minister of Justice to reconsider her position on Bill S-217 and encourage the Prime Minister, along with her fellow Liberal caucus members, to support this common sense legislation.
