Stopping sex offenders from changing their names

Handcuffs

Those who are convicted sex offenders shouldn’t be allowed to change their names.

It’s that simple.

After United Conservatives were elected, we identified this as a major problem and promised to take action.

And that’s exactly what’s happening with Bill 28 which means sex offenders must live under their own names.

Under this new law, anyone over the age of 18 who wants to change their name would be required to submit a criminal record check.

Anyone convicted of a sexual offence under the Criminal Code would be banned from changing their name legally in Alberta for life.

This is just one piece, but an important one, to help protect victims and survivors of sexual abuse. It’s a loophole that’s existed too long.

Any case where a predator can hide their identity to a future victim is unacceptable and we won’t let it happen.

If you stand with this new bill, you can sign your support right here.
