Prime Minister Stephen Harper

Stephen Harper is dedicated to building a stronger, prouder, more prosperous Canada by delivering real results for everyday Canadian families.  He has spent his entire political career standing up and speaking out for Canadians who work hard, pay their taxes and play by the rules.

As Prime Minister, Stephen Harper has delivered real action on the priorities of all Canadian families including:

  • Passing the tough new political fundraising rules that take the big money, corporations and unions out of political party financing.
  • Reducing the GST from 7% to 6% and now, to 5%.
  • Providing $1,200 per year, per child under six, that parents can spend on their own child care priorities.
  • Giving Canadians tax credits for money spent on transit passes, textbooks and kids’ sports.
  • Strengthening Canada’s product safety laws, including the first ever federal mandatory recall law, and new rules for what can be called a “product of Canada”.
  • Passing tough new laws that will keep gun criminals and sexual predators behind bars.
  • Taking real action on the environment with Canada’s first ever mandatory greenhouse gas emission regulations.
  • Investing in new patrol ships, satellite surveillance, and arctic rangers to protect our sovereignty over Canada’s North.

BEZAN CONDEMNS VINCE LI DECISION

March 2nd, 2015 – Following the Manitoba Criminal Code Review Board’s decision to allow Vince Li to move to Winnipeg, following unescorted visits in Winnipeg and in Selkirk, Member of Parliament for Selkirk-Interlake, James Bezan, issued the following statement:
 

“Last week’s decision made by the provincially appointed Manitoba Criminal Code Review Board to allow Vince Li who beheaded and cannibalized Tim McLean, to move to Winnipeg and be allowed to have unescorted day passes in Winnipeg and Selkirk is an insult to his victim’s family. I am very concerned about Tim McLean’s family who has yet to see justice served, and I express my condolences to the family for this callous decision. In my opinion, this decision poses a great risk to public safety.
 

“I am disappointed with the Province of Manitoba and this board who heard this case. The Crown has the ability to view Vince Li as a designated High Risk - Not Criminally Responsible person, but they have chosen not to. They have blatantly ignored the rights of the victim’s family, and compromised the public safety of our community in its decision. The Board did not take into consideration the family of Tim McLean, nor do they care about the public safety concerns raised by families living in Winnipeg and Selkirk.
 

“Our Conservative Government introduced the Not Criminally Responsible Reform Act, which is protecting the public from high risk offenders who are classified as not criminally responsible, such as Vince Li. The Act makes public safety a paramount consideration for provincial Review Boards considering these cases, and will ensure that the safety of victims is always considered when decisions are made about people found not criminally responsible. Our Government is addressing the challenges of mental illness in the criminal justice system, as well as protecting and respecting the rights of victims and their families.
 

“The provincial decision to grant Mr. Li unescorted trips to Winnipeg, and to let him move into a Winnipeg group home is unacceptable. I call upon Manitoba's Attorney General, the Hon. James Allum, to appeal this insensitive decision immediately, and move to place Mr. Li in the designated High Risk category allotted under the new Not Criminally Responsible Reform Act. The Crown has this ability, but instead is choosing to give Mr. Li increased freedoms and the opportunity to potentially reoffend."
