PPC Red Deer area candidates want to protect property rights

People’s Party of Canada’s Red Deer area candidates want to reduce crime and protect property rights for Canadians.

If elected in the upcoming federal election, the two will fight for a private member’s bill called the property protection act.

“If a crime occurs, it is the criminal that should be blamed and held responsible, not the legal owner who may choose to protect their property,” said Paul Mitchell, Red Deer – Mountain View PPC candidate.

“The Property Protection Act changes the Criminal Code of Canada and authorizes Canadians to take measures, including using adequate force to protect their legally owned property from theft, criminal interference or destruction,” said Mitchell.

Co-sponsor of the bill, Laura-Lynn Thompson, who is the Red Deer-Lacombe PPC candidate, says the law should be on your side.

“It’s just common sense. Your property belongs to you, not the criminal,” she added.

Both Mitchell and Thompson will fight for the bill in the House of Commons, if elected, as well as for other legislation which will reduce crime and protect property rights.
