2 Bills on Ending Corporal Punishment in Canada

Canada is in the unusual situation of having two private member’s bills tabled that call for repeal of section 43 of the Criminal Code – the law that allows physical punishment of children.

Last month, Peter Julian (MP, New Westminster-Burnaby) tabled a bill in the House of Commons.

Last week, Senator Stan Kutcher tabled a bill in the Senate.

We hope that this unique situation will renew media interest in the issue and intensify advocacy in Canada.
