Today, the Honourable Rob Nicholson, Minister of Justice, and Senator Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu, joined representatives from the Ontario Provincial Police and L’Association des policières et policiers provinciaux du Québec (APPQ) to announce tough new regulations targeting organized crime.
Many criminal gangs in Canada rely on the revenue generated through illegal gambling, prostitution, and drug-related crimes to fund their dangerous and violent criminal networks. Our Conservative Government is serious about protecting Canadians from the threat of organized crime.
Our new actions – supported by all the provincial and territorial justice ministers- would target these crimes and make them “serious offences” under the Criminal Code, helping to put more dangerous criminals behind bars.
Today’s announcement once again demonstrates our Government’s seriousness about getting tough on crime. No other party has demonstrated such leadership on criminal justice issues.
Our Conservative Government is taking action to crack down on crime every day.
