WHEREAS there is a gap in our current emergency alert system that needs to be addressed.
WHEREAS a vulnerable persons alert would help ensure the safety of our loved ones in a situation where time is critical.
WHEREAS several municipal councils, including, Brighton, Midland, Bonfield Township, Cobourg and Mississauga and several others, have passed resolutions calling for a new emergency alert to protect our loved ones.
WHEREAS over 90,000 people have signed an online petition calling for a “draven alert” and over 6,000 people have signed an online petition calling for “Loves Law”, for vulnerable people who go missing.
WHEREAS this new alert would be an additional tool in the toolbox for police forces to use to locate missing, vulnerable people locally and regionally.
WHEREAS this bill is a common-sense proposal and non-partisan in nature, to help missing vulnerable persons find their way safely home.
We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as Follows: Support and pass Bill 74, Missing Persons Amendment Act, 2023.
