C-19 — The Minister of Public Safety — Ending the Long-gun Registry Act — Second reading (first time debated)

Today, in the Canadian House of Commons:
“Government Bills (Commons)

C-19 — The Minister of Public Safety — Ending the Long-gun Registry Act — Second reading (first time debated)

Length of speeches, pursuant to Standing Orders 43 and 74:

The Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition — unlimited time and speeches are subject to a 10-minute question and comment period.

First Member of each recognized party in the first round of speeches — 20 minutes maximum and speeches are subject to a 10-minute question and comment period.

During the 5 hours of debate following the first round of speeches — 20 minutes maximum and speeches are subject to a 10-minute question and comment period.

After the period of debate referred to above — 10 minutes maximum and speeches are subject to a 5-minute question and comment period.”

This debate will begin some time after 3PM Ottawa’s time. I expect it will be long and hard fought, well worth a watch.

UPDATE The debate started well with Toews laying out many obvious points. The opposition was pretty weak, repeating old lies about the registry saving lives and such. Toews categorically stated that there was no evidence of the registry saving even one life. The debate will continue but this legislation will gut the registry and require the destruction of the data. Amen.
