OTTAWA, Canada – Canadian MPs are expected to vote on altering the country’s Criminal Code on Thursday, allowing for the prosecution of crimes committed on the Moon.

A 443-page budget implementation bill presented to Parliament this week detailed the proposed modification to the legislation, which is anticipated to pass.

Ottawa has previously broadened its authority to include criminal crimes committed by Canadian astronauts while on board the International Space Station.
