Having watched the Harper Govt for the past number of years and their chopping of heads of Independent Boards and other that do not agree with the PARTY LINE -
I do not believe that they have much credibility left.
We see the Party MP's going round sowing disinformation - In this case I have to give my support to the people that are on the line.
So I support the Gun Registry.
Police chiefs vote to endorse national firearms strategy
EDMONTON — Canada’s police chiefs voted unanimously on Monday to endorse a new national firearms policing strategy and delivered a ringing endorsement of the national firearms registry.
Their endorsement of the registry promises to set up a war of words with the Harper government, which has vowed to abolish the registry and argues that many rank-and-file cops oppose it.
“There are some police officers who disagree with the government’s position. On the other hand, all of the elected police officers in the Parliament of Canada support the government’s position,” said Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Monday during a visit to Churchill, Man.
“Canadians have been very clear. They want us to spend our time and our money focusing on the criminal misuse of firearms and not going after law-abiding duck hunters and farmers.”The gun strategy to be adopted by all police forces would outline policy standards on officer training, the operation of firearms and legislation.
