Ottawa - November 23, 2011 - Guy Lauzon, Member of Parliament for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry, is pleased to announce the his Conservative Government introduced the Citizen’s Arrest and Self-Defence Act in the House of Commons today.

“Our Government is committed to putting real criminals behind bars,” said Lauzon, “Canadians want to know they are able to protect themselves against criminal acts and that the justice system is behind them, not against them.”

This legislation provides Canadians with a clear direction on the appropriate use of citizen’s arrest, self-defence and defence of property. While police continue to be the first line of defence against crime, their presence is not always feasible. This legislation addresses those situations. The legislation will enable a person to make an arrest, within a reasonable amount of time, if someone is found committing a property-related offence and police are not present.

“I do not believe law-abiding Canadians should be the target of the criminal justice system,” said Lauzon, “I will be supporting this legislation and I am happy to see our Government continue to protect the rights of victims over the rights of criminals.”
