- Prime Minister of Canada and members of the Canadian Federal Government
Domestic Violence is hurting Canadian families and the future of our nation.
Physical, emotional and sexual abuse costs Canada over $4 billion each year (factoring into account social services, criminal justice, lost employment days and health care interventions).
Every year in Canada, up to 360,000 children are
exposed to domestic violence.
For Men, Women & Children whom are exposed to Domestic Violence, consequences can include emotional trauma, depression, injury and permanent disability, as well as other physical, psychological and behavioral problems. Unfortunately, in some situations it can also end in death.
We, the undersigned, residing in Canada, support this petition calling on The Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada and the members of the Canadian Federal Government to deem Domestic Violence a violation of Human Rights under the Criminal Code of Canada.
Thus, those who commit this act, be punished to the full extent of the laws associated with violations of Human Rights.
The Domestic Violence - A Violation of Human Rights petition to Prime Minister of Canada and members of the Canadian Federal Government was written by The Fina Bella Group and is in the category Human Rights at GoPetition.
