In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - June 17, 2015


Justice Minister Peter MacKay's testimony launches the committee's study of Bill C-35, which proposes tougher penalties for anyone who harms or kills law enforcement, service or military animals.
The legislation is called Quanto’s Law in honour of Quanto, an Edmonton police dog who was stabbed to death while helping to apprehend a suspect in 2013. Bill C-35 includes amendments to the Criminal Code that would impose a mandatory minimum sentence of six months in prison if a law enforcement animal is killed in the line of duty. (June 17, 2015) UPDATE: Bill C-35 received royal assent on June 23.
