First Call Urges BC Senators to Repeal Section 43 of the Criminal Code

On April 10, First Call wrote to BC Senators urging them to support Bill S-251, put forward by Senator Stanley Kutcher, calling for the repeal of Section 43 of the Criminal Code. Section 43 allows adults to “use force by way of correction” against children.

Repealing Section 43 is one of the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action Canada has promised to implement.
