@CTVAnchor As recently as yesterday, your minister, the Attorney-General, insisted the review was a better option, the best option. You said that last week.

@StephenMcNeil "We needed a joint inquiry, Steve."

Murphy: It was the federal govt. that said no? You were for it, they were against it.

Stephen McNeil: Right.

Murphy: And you didn't ask them why they were against it?

McNeil: We don't have the authority to compel people forward.

@BillBlair @JustinTrudeau @BernJordanMP
Murphy: Why did you not reveal that the federal govt. was opposed to it (public inquiry)?

McNeil: Let's be honest, Steve. This isn't about me or my government, or about the federal govt. It's about those families.

Clearly Steve, and let me be clear. Clearly we missed the mark.

Conservative leadership candidate @PeterMacKay is promising he will weaken Canada’s firearm laws, but leaves the most important pledge he has made to the gun lobby out of his just released firearms platform. #cdnpoli #cpcldr #guncontrol 1/6
In his platform, MacKay promises to repeal Bill c-71 passed by the Liberals in 2019, which included provisions designed to strengthen background checks, record keeping, and gun transportation rules. He says he will replace it with something but provides no details. #cdnpoli 2/6
MacKay also promises to repeal the Order-in-Council issued after the #Portapique massacre by the federal government that prohibited a large number of mostly semi-automatic assault-style rifles, including the AR-15. #cdnpoli (image by @CH_Cartoon) 3/6

#Breaking Constable Heidi Stevenson was killed in the line of duty today responding to the active shooter situation in Nova Scotia. @globalnews is releasing the officer's identity now as the police have done so and her family is aware.
Also noting I deleted a tweet where I mispelled her name, defaulted to spelling of my Stephenson by mistake. Apologies
RCMP: multiple 911 calls last night, ERT response and K9 response. Police describe it as a chaotic scene. Secured area and began a search for the suspect. Led to multiple sights in the area including structures that were on fire. Continued through night into morning
