Parliament just passed a motion asking the Standing Committee on Public Safety and
National Security to undertake a study on rural crime in Canada and consider factors,
including but not limited to:
(i) current rural crime rates and trends,
(ii) existing RCMP and other policing resources and policies in rural, remote, and
Indigenous communities, particularly in relation to population density, policing
geographic area, and staff shortages,
(iii) current partnerships with provincial, municipal, and Indigenous police forces,
(iv) possible recommendations to improve rural crime prevention and to curb emerging
crime rates, and that the Committee report its findings to the House within six months
of the adoption of this motion.
I invite you to come share your personal story on how rural crime has impacted you, as well
as your ideas on this study.
Your voice has a right to be heard!
