  • Since 2014, violent crime has increased by 38%, gang-related homicides have increased by 126%, and increasing acts of crime and violence are putting Canadians at risk;
  • Regulations regarding the use of drugs in public settings are lacking;
  • Prolific and repeat offenders continue to have an outsized negative impact on communities, businesses and citizens;
  • Local businesses should not have to accept the financial and economic consequences of the government’s lack of action in addressing crime; and
  • The RCMP should be granted the resources to effectively address rising crime.
We, the undersigned, citizens and permanent residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1. Deliver a detailed plan to specifically address the rising crime rate in Canada;
2. Work with provincial and municipal governments to create stricter regulations on open drug use;
3. Repeal soft-on-crime and catch-and-release policies that have directly contributed to the rising rate of crime in Canada; and
4. Work with provincial governments and others in the justice system to properly address recidivism and repeat/prolific offenders.
