Petition to the Government of Canada



    Trespassing and theft are crimes;

    Individuals committing these crimes run the risk of being interrupted by a homeowner; and

    These interruptions present the risk for the homeowner of being injured or killed, and as trespassing and theft are premeditated crimes, they should receive proportionate punishment.



    We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to review the laws related to trespassing and theft in order to include more severe punishments to further deter individuals from committing these crimes.
