Bill C-71 — Canadian Senate Committee on National Security and Defence (SECD) resumes review of Bill C-71, the government's planned law against hunters, farmers and sport shooters.




Senator David Richards on Bill C-71 against hunters, farmers and sport shooters:

"I think it’s a subtle bureaucratic way of profiling rural Canadians."

If you are afraid your spouse/bf/gf is going to murder or beat you, call the police or helpline immediately. Maybe consider a new relationship?

Don't lobby the government to pass new laws. Murder and beatings are already illegal.

1. What you didn't know about Carolyn Bennett, Michael Wernick, Gerry Butts, Jody Wilson-Raybould & the vicious dynamics behind this #SNCLavalin scandal

Hubris is set to undermine the Attorney General's office, Indigenous files & Veterans Affairs
2. The Trudeau Govt is reacting like a deer in headlights RE the #SNCLavalin affair, not because lobbying ministers for a DPA (deferred prosecution agreement) is improper, but because #CDNpoli has much to hide when it comes to ex Attorney General, Jody Wilson-Raybould #IdleNoMore
3. The #SNCLavalin affair was little more than partisan sniping aided by the Globe & Mail, that should have never impacted #CDNpoli discourse the way it did

Except for the fact it was well-timed to increase pressure on Wilson-Raybould to threaten Indigenous + Liberal relations

1/ A few thoughts on the history of police, semi-automatic assault-style rifles, and the murder of police officers in Canada since 1970s. #cdnpoli #cdnhist #cdnlaw @rcmpgrcpolice @StamatakisCPA @BillMooreCACP @CPPOM @BillBlair @CACP_ACCP
2/ Sale of guns like AR15 led Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (@CACP_ACCP) in 1977 to say “semi-automatic firearms are basically designed as an instrument of war” that had “no sporting use.” Association asked that such guns be made restricted. (Ad: Canada Gunsport, 1976)
3/ In 1986 @CACP_ACCP noted increase in "commercial advertisements, firing ranges, gun clubs” that led to “proliferation of handguns and restricted weapons.” Asked governments to “take the steps necessary to end this increase in available weapons.” #cdnlaw #cdnhist #cdnpoli
