    Canadian Victims Bill of Rights Comes into Force July 23rd marked the coming-into-force of the Canadian Victims Bill of Rights, which provides clear rights for victims of crime at the federal level. This legislation is part of our Government's Plan for Safe Streets and Communities, which focuses on holding violent offenders accountable, enhancing the rights of victims, and increasing the efficiency of the justice system. This Bill of Rights, delivers on our commitment in the 2013 Speech from the Throne and Budget 2014 to ensure that every victim of crime will now have an effective voice in our criminal justice system. It establishes statutory rights to information, protection, and participation and to seek restitution, and it ensures that a complaint process is in place for breaches of these rights by a federal department or agency. Building on existing federal and provincial laws and policies, the Canadian Victims Bill of Rights enshrines a victim's right to receive, on request, general information about: - the criminal justice system and the role of victims; - available victim services and programs, including restorative justice programs; and - the right to make a complaint if in their opinion their rights have been infringed or denied. Providing a voice to victims is important to both me and members of our community. That is why, over the past six years, proceeds of my annual charity event have been directed to the RCMP Victims’ Service Units in Airdrie, Banff, Canmore, Cochrane, and Olds. Thanks in part to the tremendous efforts of Victims’ Services volunteers we have managed to raise more than $370,000.The dedication these volunteers show is a true example for all who seek to build a stronger and fairer justice system, and the dedication of our community to victims rights.

Please make sure to post to Facebook and Twitter when you receive your child care money to let me and Prime Minister Harper know you got it!
