Michael Cooper

Meet Your MP

Michael Cooper is the Conservative Member of Parliament for St. Albert-Edmonton.  First elected in October 2015 and re-elected in October 2019, Michael served as a member of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights. Earlier in the current Parliament, Michael served as the Official Opposition Deputy Shadow Minister for Finance and as a member of the Standing Committee on Finance.

In the last Parliament Michael served as the Official Opposition Deputy Shadow Minister for Justice. He also served as Vice-Chair of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights and Vice-Chair of the Special Joint Committee on Physician-Assisted Dying.   

Michael has been a strong advocate for victims and strengthening Canada’s criminal justice system.  Michael sponsored Bill S-217, known as Wynn’s Law, in honour of the late Constable David Wynn who was shot and killed by a career criminal out on bail.  Wynn’s Law would amend the Criminal Code to make it mandatory for the criminal history of bail applicants to be disclosed at bail hearings, something that could have saved the life of Constable Wynn.

Michael has also worked closely with victims of impaired driving.  He has advocated for mandatory sentences for impaired driving offences, and vocally opposed efforts by the Liberal government to water-down sentences for impaired driving and other serious offences.

After an increase in vandalism to police and other first responder monuments across Canada, Michael is working with Conservative Senator Leo Housakos in championing Bill S-221. The bill seeks to add significant penalties for anyone convicted of vandalizing a monument dedicated to police and other first responders to ensure that perpetrators of such reprehensible acts are held accountable under the law 

Michael has also been an advocate for jurors, which represents the last form of mandatory civic duty in Canada.  In the last Parliament, Michael... Read Bio
