Parm has always felt strongly about keeping the youth of Ontario, and Canada as a whole, safe. He believes that the youth is the future of our great country, it is important to keep them safe and on the path to success.
In 2012, Parm introduced a Private Member’s Bill, C-394. His bill introduced a new Criminal Code offense: prohibiting the recruitment or encouragement of a person to join a criminal organization. The bill passed and became law in June 2014. Since most criminal organizations look to youth when recruiting new members, the bill works to keep our streets, neighbourhoods, and communities safer, which has always been a top priority for Parm.
