In Committee from the House of Commons - Justice and Human Rights - April 27, 2015


Justice Minister Peter MacKay discusses legislation (C-35) that 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. (April 27, 2015) UPDATE: Bill C-35 received royal assent on June 23.
