Andrew Scheer’s plan to combat gang crimes for safer communities
A Conservative government under Andrew Scheer will also require those on parole to cut ties with gangs. Statistics show offenders are more likely to re-offend on parole if they’re in a gang. If you’re associating with gangs while on parole, you go back to jail.
4. Tougher sentences for ordering gang crime
Right now, gang leaders who order others to commit crimes can receive very short sentences in prisons, often served alongside other gang members. A Conservative government under Andrew Scheer will bring in mandatory sentences in federal prison for directing gang crime, sending a strong message to gang members that they belong behind bars.
5. New sentences for violent gang crime
Gang-related murders, assaults, robberies and other violent acts are steadily on the rise and pose the biggest threat to Canadians’ safety. A Conservative government under Andrew Scheer will create new offences for committing and ordering violent gang crime and attach mandatory sentences in federal prison for each.
