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
