THE federal government introduced Bill C-95, a package of anti-gang measures that target criminal gang activity, in 1997. The bill makes it an indictable offence for someone to knowingly participate in a criminal organization. This offence is punishable by up to 14 years in prison. Critics of Bill C-95 say it goes too far, arguing it infringes on the freedom of association guaranteed by Section 2(d) of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
