Sign the Petition: Wrongful Conviction Day
We urge those interested in a more just Canada to sign this petition:
Petition to the Government of Canada
The loss of one’s freedom due to a wrongful conviction has far reaching effects. It not only negatively affects the innocent individual’s quality of life and their loved ones, but also has a harmful effect on society as a whole; and
Wrongful convictions question the integrity and fairness of the criminal justice system, unless recognized and corrected, undermine society’s trust in the criminal justice system.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to proclaim October 2 as WRONGFUL CONVICTION DAY in Canada.
