e-4406 (Public safety)

Initiated by Tavis Settles from Calgary, Alberta

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • Reports indicate that one in four Canadians do not feel safe using public transit alone;
  • As many as 3,000 assaults on public transit occur annually;
  • More and more Canadians are feeling unsafe in their cities as violent crime increases;
  • We have seen many cases where violent criminals have committed crimes while released on bail;
  • Recent polls indicate that 57% of Canadians feel that the government is not doing enough to tackle the issue of crime;
  • This government has failed to meaningfully address issues like addictions and mental health support, which are lacking in Canada;
  • Canadians deserve to feel safe in their communities and the Liberal government must act.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to 1. Work with Canada’s premiers, victim advocacy groups and affected Canadians to ensure safety in our communities and eliminate crime on public transit; and
2. Keep the most dangerous criminals behind bars.
