Prime Minister Stephen Harper has outlined a re-elected Conservative government’s plan to keep communities safe and crack down on criminals.
Next steps include doubling funding for Child Advocacy Centres which lead the prosecution and treatment of crimes against children, extending child victim services outside urban centres and funding research into the “invisible” economic and social damage inflicted on victims of crime.
A re-elected Harper government will also quickly pass the “Life Means Life” Act and the Dangerous and Impaired Driving Act.
Justin Trudeau’s Liberals and Thomas Mulcair’s NDP have opposed many of the government’s more than 60 anti-crime bills, including the Life Means Life Act.
Only a re-elected Conservative government will make it a priority to fight crime, protect our children and make our communities safe.
