The Spanking Law is a cruel law written in the Criminal Code of Canada. It allows parents to hit or "Spank" their children if the parents deem it necessary. The problem with this law is that there aren't too many restrictions, and this leads to parents hitting their children way too hard and physically injuring them.

This especially affects Indigenous communities as many of these parents went to residential school. Residential schools taught many of these parents that violence is the way to raise people. That mixed with the trauma that these people have received are the reasons that having a "spanking law" isn't safe.
