In the interests of reducing violence against women, Prime Minister candidate Kellie Leitch is campaigning with the promise to legalize pepper spray for self-defense.
Leitch wants to eliminate ambiguity about pepper spray legality. "In 2012, in Gatineau, Que., a store clerk used pepper spray to ward off an attack but was not charged for using the spray," recounts the National Post. "But two 15-year-olds in Ottawa in 2013 ended up facing a combined 18 charges after discharging pepper spray on a city bus."
"My thoughts around this issue are primarily with Canadian women," Leitch stated. "Clarifying the laws around the use of pepper spray for self-defense will give women a greater measure of protection against would-be attackers."
