A few times a Parliamentary session a bill is presented that is exception and deserves our enthusiastic support. One such bill was tabled in the House of Commons earlier this week.
It is Bill C-225 also known as "Cassie and Molly's Law."
C-225 was tabled by MP Cathay Wagantall and was inspired by the murder of Cassandra (Cassie) Kaake and her unborn child she was 7 months pregnant with when she was brutally killed.
The current criminal code in Canada recognizes the mother's (Cassie's) death as murder but does not recognize the death of her wanted baby daughter, Molly, who was also a victim in the crime.
This is unjust.
If passed, C-225 would change this.
In the weeks and months ahead we will be informing you about the progress of this bill and what you can do to support it.
