PC party: sex offenders should wear GPS devices

MOUNT FOREST - Perth-Wellington PC candidate Randy Pettapiece and party leader Tim Hudak have announced their party’s plans to force registered sex offenders to wear GPS tracking devices.

“There are 14,000 registered sex offenders living in our neighbourhoods. Families have a right to be kept safe,” said Pettapiece.

Police currently have no way of tracking the movements of those individuals.

Three Canadian provinces, the federal government and more than 40 U.S. states use GPS technology to monitor certain types of offenders.
