    Petition to create two Canadian DNA databanks


    The movement to create two Canadian DNA databanks to help law enforcement agencies in missing persons investigations has taken another step forward.

    On Wednesday, Conservative MP Ray Boughen presented a petition to the House of Commons that asked Parliament to support creating national DNA missing persons and unidentified human remains databanks and linking them with the national DNA databank used to catch criminals.

    The petition, which had 925 signatures, was brought to Boughen by Melanie Alix of Moose Jaw, Sask., whose son Dylan Koshmann has been missing since October of 2008.

    "I think it's an issue that will bring closure to some questions that people have," Boughen said. "Right now, there are very limited identification opportunities."
