Petition to Kill Harper's Crime Bill
The Harper Government has introduced "The Safe Streets and Communities Act" into Parliament. Essentially, making sentences longer, and adding many manditory minimum sentences, particularly for drug crimes. This approach to crime is a proven failure. Manditory minimums will fill our prisons, create more hardened criminals, cost the taxpayers of Canada billions of dollars per year, and leave us no safer then we ever were. In fact, it will leave us less safe. Criminologist, lawyers and judges will tell you that this is a disaster for our justice system, our economy and our society. Therefore, we hereby call on the Government of Canada to prevent the passage of this "Safe Streets and Communities Act" into law.
