They are going to try again. Vic Toews will introduce it and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters will tee off against The Canadian Labour Congress, whatever they have to say on the matter of eliminating the registry.
“For Canada’s labour movement, the gun registry is an important tool for workplace safety.“ Yeah, right. The gun grabbers just never seem to quit.
On the way the New Democratic Party treated elected members of the House of Commons who voted as their constituents wished, OFAH wrote, “The long gun registry is an issue that has long divided rural and urban Canada. Mr. Rafferty and Mr. Hyer represent rural ridings where the vast majority of residents hunt and fish, and where sentiment against the long gun registry runs deep, something that Mr. Layton understood, regardless of his personal position on the issue.
In voting the way they did on Bill C-19, Mr. Rafferty and Mr. Hyer acted as we expect our elected representatives in Parliament to act, when given a mandate by the electorate in their riding. For them to be silenced in the House and removed from Committees for their actions is not only a gross overreaction on your part, but an affront to the parliamentary system.”
Amen. This will be interesting.
