Michael Cooper

Meet Your MP

Michael Cooper is the Conservative Member of Parliament for St. Albert-Edmonton.  First elected in 2015, Michael was re-elected in  2019, and again in 2021. Michael serves as a member of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights and the Sub Committee on International Human Rights. 

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 been an advocate for jurors, which represents the last form of mandatory civic duty in Canada.  In 2018, Michael introduced Bill C-417, which seeks to amend the Criminal Code so that jurors suffering from mental health issues arising from their jury service can disclose all aspects of their jury service with medical health professionals without criminal penalty. The Bill passed unanimously at all stages in the House of Commons, a significant achievement given that few Private Members' Bills introduced by opposition MP's pass at any stage. The 2019 election was called before the Bill could be voted on in the Senate. 

Since then, Michael has worked with Conservative Senator Pierre-Hughes Boisvenu in championing similar legislation, Bill S-206. In December 2021, Bill S-206 was passed unanimously in the Senate. Michael is the sponsor of the Bill in the House of Commons, which is expected to be debated in May 2022. 

As a leading advocate for strengthening relations with Taiwan, in June 2021, Michael introduced Bill C-315, the Canada-Taiwan Relations Framework Act.  Modeled after the U.S. Taiwan... Read Bio
