McCann family frustrated by federal foot-dragging on zombie laws


Bret McCann says he's frustrated that federal legislation aimed at purging the Criminal Code of so-called zombie laws is seeing no movement in the House of Commons after it was introduced one year ago. McCann blames outdated laws that are still in the Criminal Code for derailing the verdict in a six-year criminal trial revolving around the disappearance of his parents, Lyle and Marie McCann. "The consternation and pain endured by my family because of this so-called zombie law was enormous," McCann said. McCann said he has since learned there are many sections of the Criminal Code which are obsolete or have been deemed unconstitutional. While it has been introduced in the House of Commons, nothing has been done to move it forward, McCann said.
