Passing Wynn’s law should be a no-brainer

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to speak in the House during the debate on Wynn’s law.

This legislation will require that prosecutors disclose a bail applicant’s criminal history at a bail hearing.

By closing this loophole in the Criminal Code, this legislation could save lives and increase public safety.

But the Liberals have vowed to vote against this common-sense piece of legislation.

Sign this petition today to tell the Liberal government to support Wynn’s law: https://petitions.parl.gc.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-712

Sign this e-petition today urging the Liberals to pass Wynn’s Law

Constable David Wynn was murdered by a career criminal out on bail, whose criminal history wasn’t disclosed at the bail hearing.

Currently, Canada’s Criminal Code doesn’t require the disclosure of a bail applicant’s criminal history.

Wynn’s law would close this loophole.

I’ve already received feedback from hundreds of you that think Wynn’s law is common-sense legislation.

Shamefully, the Liberal government has vowed to defeat this legislation.

If you want to see Wynn’s law passed, send the Liberals a message and sign this e-petition today: https://petitions.parl.gc.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-712

Why hasn’t the construction started?

Edmonton’s Liberal Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi talks a good game but he’s failing to deliver the goods on his promised projects.

Only one of 127 infrastructure projects announced by the Liberals has started construction.

Nothing has started in Edmonton.

In the House of Commons, I demanded to know why. Sohi evaded the question.

Watch this poignant video on the 1944 deportation of Crimean Tatars

This heartrending video on the 1944 deportation of Crimean Tatars was created by survivors and their descendants in Ukraine.

Today in the House of Commons, my Private Member’s Bill, C-306, the Crimean Tatar Deportation (“Sürgünlik”) Memorial Day Act will be debated. Visit here to see the full text of my bill.

Canada’s formal recognition of this genocidal act will bring Canadians, Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars closer together, and in this spirit I am hoping to have the support of all Members of Parliament.
