For Immediate Release February 25, 2016
On February 23, 2016, Conservative Member of Parliament for Yorkton Melville Cathay Wagantall introduced her Private Members Bill “Cassie and Molly’s Law” in the House of Commons. This legislation targets violent criminals who commit a criminal offense against a pregnant woman and knowingly cause injury or death of the preborn child.
The tragic story of Jeff Durham who suffered the loss of Cassie and their daughter Molly motivated Wagantall to introduce Bill-C 225. Molly and Cassie were both murdered but the gap in the Criminal Code does not provide justice for Molly.
“Molly Matters” is a National Campaign which advocates for reforms to the Criminal Code of Canada to enhance safety of Canadian women and their preborn children. “Cassie and Molly’s Law” would accomplish just that.
I want to thank Cathay Wagantall for her courage and determination to introduce “Cassie and Molly’s Law”, legislation that will protect women, preborn children and ensure violent criminals are held accountable for their actions.
I encourage all people of Saskatchewan to support BILL- C 225 and the “Molly Matters” campaign.
