1. Canada's Youth Criminal Justice Act does not offer a tough approach to youth crime the tough approach that the majority of Canadians have been demanding for decades; and
2. Young offenders feel that the severity of their sentences will not match the gravity of their crimes, and:
3. Young people, like fourteen year old Dustin Geil, tragically pay the ultimate price for the lack of youth Justice in Canada; Therefore,

We, the undersigned residents of Canada, call upon Parliament to reform Canada's Criminal Youth Justice Act so that: young offenders face longer sentences; the number of young offenders tried as adults increases; and the prospect of justice causes youth crime statistics to decrease.

(Signing the petition will help us in two ways. First, it sends a message to Canada's law-makers. Secondly, if you wish, you can receive news and updates on both the trial for Dustin's murder, and proposed changes to the youth criminal justice act. If you don't want to receive updates, you can still sign the petition - just check the box next to "Private" beside your email address.)
