Tim Mclean was the young man that was murdered on a Greyhound bus near Port la Prairie in 2008. At the time, Tim was simply minding his own business when he was savagely killed for no other reason than being in the right place at the wrong time. As a consequence, the family of Tim McLean are advocating for the Government of Canada to enact legislation that would protect future potential victims from these types of crimes. They refer to this initiative as “Tim’s Law.” Admittedly, most of us never knew Tim McLean. And now we never will. But what we have in common is that we have all had an opportunity to know someone like Tim. While we can not prevent every criminal tragedy from occurring, we can lessen the chance of a repeat offender by demanding accountability and transparency within the penal and judicial systems. Please help us lobby for Tim McLean
While your thoughts are appreciated, and shared by many people, many other individuals, and groups in Canada would use these same arguments to cloud the real goals of Tim’s Law. The policy and procedures currently used in Canada in regards to people deemed Not Criminally Responsible, is lacking and provides no assurance that this behaviour would not be repeated on another family by the same individual,and that is the reasoning behind Tim’s Law. To open the debate on how we “treat” people who have offended in this manner. Tim’s Law, would do nothing to prevent this type of crime. It could only help prevent it from reoccurring by the same perpetrator. This is a debate that is very much needed,but we must be careful not to cloud the reasoning, or allow others to cloud the reasoning ,We urge you to become involved.
