Domestic Violence Action Plan
On Nov. 20, 2012, Justice Minister Ross Landry announced the Transgendered Persons Protection Act. This Act makes it clear that Nova Scotians cannot be denied a job, a place to live or service at a business because they are transgender. Nova Scotia is the fourth jurisdiction in Canada to include a specific reference to gender identity in its human rights legislation.

The Government of the Province of Nova Scotia is offering rewards of up to one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($150,000) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Jason Allan MacCULLOUGH.
Police found the body of 19 year old Jason MacCULLOUGH on a paved path between 100 and 104 Pinecrest Drive in Dartmouth around 02:30 am on August 28, 1999. Police have confirmed there is no indication the victim was involved in any type of criminal activity.
This information leads police to believe this may be a random act of violence. Police believe the victim, who did not live in the area, was just passing through and used the well-known short-cut between the buidlings.
Any person with information regarding the person(s) responsible for the murder of Jason Allan MacCULLOUGH should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090.
The reward is payable in Canadian funds and will be apportioned as deemed just by the Minister of Justice for the Province of Nova Scotia. Employees of law enforcement and correctional agencies are not eligible to collect this reward.
