There is a Bill in front of the Provincial legislature right now called Bill 74 Missing Persons Amendment Act. It proposes to amend the Amber Alert system to add vulnerable people - children and adults with disabilities, adults with dementia, other vulnerabilities.
The bill passed second reading and is waiting for the Justice Policy Committee to set dates to hear deputations to then pass it in the house.
You can help push the government to pass this act! Show your support by emailing your MPP and ask them to pass Bill 74.
