Lobby for change of Statutory Release Act (Reverse Decision to Release Dangerous Sex Offender)

We, as Canadian citizens and taxpayers, do not feel our rights are being protected under the Corrections and Conditional Release Act, (see Statutory Release, Entitlement, section 127). Where upon violent offenders are being granted statutory release without having demonstrated a significant level of rehabilitation, our society remains at risk.  We demand said release be denied until such time as an offender is no longer deemed to be greater than low risk to reoffend. We demand the right to feel safe in the communities where these federal halfway houses are located. Our communities, our home!
