The first duty of government is to protect public safety.
We saw the NDP get distracted with reckless economic experiments instead of putting a serious priority on community safety.
That’s why we promised one of the most comprehensive platforms to improve public safety in Alberta and we’re delivering.
Under the NDP, we saw a rural crime crisis spread across the province. Too many Albertans felt vulnerable and defenseless on their own properties.
In the Fall of 2019, we outlined our plan to keep rural Albertans safe. It included more policing, strengthening property rights, and new tools for victims.
Promise made and promise kept.
Human trafficking sadly still happens in countries like Canada every day. Between 2009 and 2016, there were 1,099 police-reported incidents which involved a human trafficking offense, according to Stats Canada.
This big legislation passed by our United Conservative government extends the definition of sexual exploitation to personals of all ages, gives beefed up tools to survivors and police, allows survivors to sue traffickers, and creates an awareness day.
We made a clear commitment during the election to protect those at risk from domestic violence.
And in Fall 2019, we followed through with that commitment when we passed the Disclosure to Protect Against Domestic Violence Act, also known as Clare’s Law., which gives individuals tools to be more aware of an intimate partner’s previous history of domestic violence or violent acts.
